Love it or hate it
When this modern art museum opened in the 1970s, its hyper-industrial-on-acid exterior raised quite the stir in a country where tradition reigns supreme. Love it or hate it, the architecture is, objectively, unique, and the exhibits inside are unbeatable. The translucent escalator tubes and the chic Costes brothers’ Restaurant Georges on the top floor offer stellar views of the Paris landscape. Also, don’t miss the whimsical sculptures at the Stravinsky Fountain, adjacent to the museum.
