Centre Georges Pompidu (Boubourg)Approx. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

The Centre George Pompidu, or "Boubourg", as it is popularly known, was an outrage to Paris upon its construction not only due to its placement in the heart of the historic Marais district, but primarily because of its outlandish architecture which exposes the internal skeleton structure on the outside. Now a beautiful example of the innovative nature of both French taste and architectural style, the Pompidou center is cultural center, library and museum.
