Centre Pompidou

It has been a good tradition that every president of France left something behind in Paris to remember his name. So did Georges Pompidou, who was President around 1970. Some blocks in the city centre were torn down, and in one of the gaps Centre Pompidou was established. Pretty modern for that time, and still the excentric architecture is a remarkable view in the middle of the antique facades that surround the building. You will find a collection of contemporary art. And it's in the middle of a nice area in the 3rd Arrondissement, at walking distance from les Halles, Notre Dame and so on.
