A Challenge to Step Inside the Centre Georges Pompidou

Regardless of what you think of the building, the Centre Georges Pompidou is a great community center and museum of modern art! But the building is actually really cool and worth a visit just to see it. The idea is to get passers-by to wonder what the ???? and go inside to check it out.

French President Georges Pompidou had a love affair with modern art his whole life, and didn't like stuffy museums. When he commissioned the museum that would be named after him, he asked for a building project that would challenge people passing by, even people who had never visited a museum in their life!
