The Centre Pompidou is Europe’s most important museum of modern art and one of the worlds most significant art galleries.
Some of the art movements represented within the Pompidou Center are Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism. It has 50,000 works of art (including paintings, sculpture, drawings, and photography), of which 1,500 to 2,000 are on display to the visitors of this National Museum of Modern Art.
The building's design is somewhat contentious but undeniably unique, distinctive, and increasingly appreciated by all who see it. As a piece of modern architecture and the realisation of aesthetic principle, it is a fantastic achievement for the Center Pompidou and makes it popular with tourists in Paris.
The fourth and fifth floors of the Centre Pompidou are home to the Musée National d'Art Moderne, one of the major international collections of modern art located in Paris. It includes works by artists such as Kandinsky, Matisse, Miró, and Picasso.

This was my daughter's first time to Paris. The PASS made it easier to move around Paris and to visit all the wonderful museums, historical sites, etc. We were able to "move" ahead of the long lines because we had the PASS --( We were treated as if we were "special.").
