POMPIDOU CENTER in PARIS, FRANCE

April 22, 2014

Posting from home now.  All wonderful trips must come to an end and I’m now back to reality – not everyday can be  spent in Amsterdam or Paris.  But I do still have a lot to share…..such as the…

Pompidou Center !  A crazy looking place and how fun that can be!  It contains  the Modern Art Museum  ( Musee National  d’Art Moderne) and even if you  are not a fan, you should walk by  and check out the “exoskeletal” building. All the functional parts are on the outside, so they say.  I loved the fountains (free) that are adjacent to the building ” Homage to Stravinsky” .

Btw, Word Press seems to be cutting off some of my photos if you are viewing them on a large screen – please bare with me as I’m trying to find a solution. : )

Back of the Pompidou Center, or is this the front?

I’m pretty sure this is the front, but maybe it’s the back? ??

This church  and the building with the “shhh” mural sits right beside the Center.

    The fountains are fun, but I prefer skeletons on the inside. What a contrast to the Louvre or Versailles. I am officially old. Welcome home. I know you had a wonderful trip!
