Centre Georges Pompidou

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.

si tu aimes l'art contemporain... Sinon il y a le Georges, resto chic avec vue imprenable tout en haut du centre Pompidou mais attention à la note... très salée et le service pas terrible

Very unique building architecturally

From the outside this museum stands out architecturally, you either hate it or love it. Myself, I have always liked anything that doesn't fit the norm.
