Pompidou Museum

I am back home in Provence after my French class and the most exciting thing I’ve done since I’ve been here is pull weeds and plant my vegetable garden so I’m going to post some postings that I’ve had saved up for a while.


I was supposed to meet a friend-Lisa of www.theboldsoul.com-at the Picasso Museum. I don’t know why but when I saw the P of Picasso in her email, I read Pompidou so when she called asking where I was I finally figured out that I was in the wrong place. As it turned out neither place was open due to the strikes that day and they aren’t that far apart from each other. Anyway, while waiting for Lisa I took a few photos of the exterior of the Pompidou. It’s such a strange building in my eyes, all inside out, but I guess it’s interesting. It can be very lively in the area but it was quiet when I was there.


The clear tubes are the escalators. If you go to the top, there is a splendid view and a restaurant called George.


I guess these are for ventilation. There are eight of them outside.


Some exterior modern art.

  1. almost like the building was built inside out. not a fan. a little too much on the over the edge side.
    have a wonderful day.

  2. That was really funny that not only did we get our wires crossed that day about which museum, but both of the damn things were closed anyway. Oh well, we made the most of it and had fun anyway. Great pix, I love the Pompidou for photo opps because it’s so interesting. Welcome back!
