Beaubourg - Pompidou Centre

The Centre Georges Pompidou, also known as the Centre Beaubourg, is a cultural complex located in the Marais district of Paris. Opened in 1977, the center is named after Georges Pompidou, former president of the French Republic, who initiated the project in 1969. The building was designed by architects Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and is considered one of the most famous examples of postmodern architecture.

The Centre Georges Pompidou is home to several museums and art galleries, including the Musée National d'Art Moderne, which is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art in the world. The National Museum of Modern Art houses a collection of over 100,000 works of art, spanning all periods of the 20th century, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations and videos.

The Centre Georges Pompidou is also known for its temporary exhibitions, which feature contemporary art by some of the world's most innovative and influential artists. Exhibitions are held in several of the center's exhibition spaces, including the Galerie Sud, which houses the most important temporary exhibitions, and the Galerie des Enfants, which offers educational activities for children.

The center also houses a public library, the Public Information Library, which is one of the largest public libraries in Europe. The library houses over 2 million items, including books, periodicals, newspapers and sound recordings. The library is open to all and offers free access to its collections.

The Centre Georges Pompidou is also a lively cultural venue, with concerts, performances, film screenings, workshops and special events throughout the year. The center's relaxation areas, such as the panoramic terraces, offer a breathtaking view of the city of Paris.
