Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

Curious about the building with the big red and blue tubes? Join us on a 2-2.5 hour walking tour through the world’s most dynamic collection of modern art!

 

With its controversial architecture—the brainchild of Renzo Piano—that makes it look like an inside-out fever dream, the Pompidou Center is today a Parisian landmark. During this in-depth tour—no more than 8 guests per visit—our certified guides will take you deep into one of the world’s most exciting museums!

After learning about how the museum was created, you’ll explore its contemporary art collection, which boasts almost 3200 pieces. You’ll study movements like Cubism as you gaze at Picasso paintings and Fauvisim while getting up close and personal with Matisse. You’ll fast forward to the World Wars, when surrealists like Dali came into their own and Dadaism became the latest craze. You’ll find out more about the generation-defining Pop Art movement with Warhol, then Bauhaus, Abstract Expressionism and the works of international artists like O’Keefe, Pollock and Mondrian. By the time you reach the contemporary art galleries, with lesser-known works from more recent artistic movements like Fluxus and Minimalism, and take a peek at the extraordinary view from the roof, you’ll have a complete overview of the modern art world.
