Pompidou Centre - Musée national d’art moderne
The Centre Pompidou -- also known as the Beaubourg -- is one of the premier cultural centers in Paris, and there is no other museum in the world where you can immerse yourself in so much 20th and 21st century art. It contains exhibits from Picasso, Duchamp, Matisse, Ernst, Warhol and many other founding fathers of modern art. The museum, housed in a building which itself is a controversial work of art, also showcases the work of many of today's cutting-edge artists.
