Centre Pompidou

Centre Pompidou is situated in the Beaubourg area in the 4th arrondissement, which is a 5 – 10 minute walk from our apartment.

Today we went to see more of the building and the sculptures in the fountain next to it.

The centre is the National Museum of Modern Art with among other things right now an exhibition of pop art. Moreover it has a centre for music research and it houses a big public library.

The building itself is famous for its’ architecture which is quite unique. The structural elements of the building are colour-coded.
