The striking architecture of Centre Pompidou-Metz accentuates the beauty of the modern and contemporary artwork housed inside. The museum is a branch of the popular Centre Pompidou in Paris, and is one of the most visited cultural venues in France. The museum building’s hexagonal shape is one of its distinct features. Its roof is composed of laminated timber that intersects to form hexagonal wooden units, resembling the cane-work pattern of a Chinese hat. Three large galleries host exhibits. Most of these are from the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art, which is the largest European collection of modern and contemporary art. The museum also includes a terrace restaurant with interiors inspired by a kaleidoscope, and a well-designed garden.

Really interesting building, whether you like the art will of course depend on your taste. It wasn't really to ours but it was still worth the visit.

The building is pretty and the expositions are interesting. Unfortunately, the information about the works of art is placed very low on the walls in a teeny tiny font. My eyes are good, but this was really designed for children with perfect eyes? Overall experience: good!
The chagall exhibition was superb and we had a day pass for the whole gallery My wife is the arty one but.... thoroughly enjoyed the day and we had a nice lunch too! The building is spectacular. 5 stars.
