Le centre Pompidou est une oeuvre d'art à lui tout seul : c'est pour cela qu'en plus des expositions ou des performances artistiques qu'il propose, il est devenu incontournable.
Symbole de modernité, il est né de la volonté du Président Pompidou de créer au cœur de Paris, un établissement voué à la création contemporaine. Le centre Pompidou reçoit près de 6 millions de visiteurs par an.
