The Pompidou Centre in Paris is a must see for any visitor to Paris. Having received over 150 million people since its opening in 1977, it has become a globally renowned symbol of Paris, on par with the Louvre as one of the most eminent museums in France. Known for its radical and unusual ‘high-tech’ architecture, its design has inspired countless buildings and complexes around the world. Beneath the steel and glass superstucture are housed three important national collections; a national public library, the national museusm of modern art, and IRCAM, a centre for music and acoustic research. The Musée National d’Art Moderne holds the largest modern art collection in all of Europe. The Pompidou Centre is a great day out for its sheer diversity, and is must on any list of things to do in Paris. The Pompidou Centre showcases a number of styles such as Cubism, Surrealism and Fauvism, with over 2,000 works of art on display at any given time. Some of the most famous collections include those from Kadinsky, Matisse, Miro and Picasso. It stands alongside the Louvre and Orsay as one of the centrepiece Paris Musuems to vist, and like the Louvre is renowned just as much for its own unique architecture as well as the collections it houses. Around the corner in Notre Dame is the Crypte Archéologique de Notre-Dame. This haunting and atmospheric experience takes the visitor underneath Paris’ streets to explore the life of the people of the city long before the modern age. Beginning with the Parisii, the Celtic tribe that founded Paris and from which derives its name, and ending with the extravagances of the Roman Empire, the crypt is a time portal to the past. It is a perfect way to sense the long history of Paris, its momentuous cultural upheavals and changing society through the ages. Moreover, it is located next to one of the most visited of all Paris attractions, Notre Dame cathedral. All within walking distance from each other, the Pompidou centre and Notre Dame attractions are an easy and insightful way to spend an afternoon in Paris.
