Guided tours and talks

To discover the museum and its incomparable collection of modern and contemporary art, the Centre Pompidou proposes guided tours and talks for a journey through creation of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Centre Pompidou also invites visitors to enjoy a tour of the numerous exhibitions staged throughout the year. 


Discovering exhibtions

Giving free rein to your emotions, learning to look at works with a critical and documented eye, and discovering the aesthetic and historical issues involved in a temporary exhibition: these are just some of the highlights in store for visitors during a guided tour of the Centre Pompidou’s exhibitions.
