Discover The Centre Pompidou France

Built by the architects Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano on the initiative of President Pompidou, the Centre Pompidou has always seen itself as a temple of the contemporary period, a place where the arts and culture are accessible to all. It is home to the Musée National d'Art Moderne (National Museum of Modern Art) and the Institut de Recherche Acoustique et Musicale (Institute of Acoustic and Musical Research, IRCAM). It also includes a free library, many exhibition rooms, shops, restaurants, and a cinema.
