Get the most of contemporary and modern art with this 2-hour private tour of the Centre Pompidou. The tour includes visiting the permanent collection as well as the exterior of the edifice.
In the very heart of Paris stands the Centre Pompidou, an imposing building made of iron and glass wrapped in colored tubes, elevators and escalators. Built by the architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and inaugurated in 1977, this industrial construction has been a subject of great controversy before becoming one of the symbols of Paris.
You'll discover the history of both the inside and the outside of the building: a vast public library, a research acoustics and music institute, the Stravinsky fountain, numerous cinemas, photo gallery, various exhibitions spaces and the atelier of the sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Your guide will bring you to the top of the building for a breathtaking view of Paris and from there we will start a journey through the great historical avant-gardes of the 20th century.
The second part of the tour is dedicated to contemporary creation from the 1960s to the present day, a fun and informative walk through the caprices of contemporary artists!
