    It's by far the best place to view modern art in Paris. If you have to choose between the Louvre and the Pompidou centre, choose the Pompidou centre. Want to see the Mona Lisa? Just Google it. The actual thing has to be queued for or you can try to see it from an angle to avoiding the queue. Granted the Louvre and the Pompidou show different types of art - Classical vs modern. But the classical, Renaissance pieces just turn into wallpaper after a while. So many of them. Too many of them. And unless you are some kind of expert (if you were you wouldn't be reading this review) then go to the Pompidou Centre. Don't forget the top floor has amazing views of the Paris skyline too.

    There isn't a 'priority entrance' (as Get Your Guide indicates) just because you have booked online in advance. You enter/queue with everyone else. The only thing that seems to put you in the fast track queue is booking a ticket in advance with a specific time slot. The queue to get in was about 100-150m long on the Saturday morning, but once inside it's enormous and the size absorbs everyone brilliantly. Easy to get served and find a table in the cafe. I was concerned about plastic cups in the cafe. Hopefully, they're being recycled?? It would have been nice if jugs of water and glasses were available for people to help themselves. A gluten free cake option would have been really nice too!

    An excellent experience.

    I'm afraid of heights and couldn't make the 6th floor on the escalators. A helpful customer service person on the information desk assured me that firemen at the Centre help such people all of the time but I didn't avail myself of that. It meant that we had to leave the building to get lunch (café and restaurant on 6th floor during refurbishment) and then come back in all of which was very smooth. The exhibits were stunning and the staff very helpful.
