The Georges Pompidou Center in Paris Will Be Closed for 5 Years

The Georges Pompidou Center in Paris will be closed for reconstruction from 2025 to 2030.

The institution will be closed for its own 50th anniversary but will collaborate with other museums in the city, including the Louvre, to implement projects during this period, according to The Art Newspaper.

As part of the reconstruction, the Pompidou Center will expand by 20,000 square meters of currently unused space located beneath the gallery. The new premises will house two cinemas, create areas for multidisciplinary exhibitions, and sections for contemporary art.

A “next-generation center” will be established on the first floor on the northern side, and a large restaurant will open on the southern side. The public library will remain on the third floor. The National Museum of Modern Art will be located on the fourth and fifth floors but will undergo complete restoration. The terrace, spanning 1,500 square meters and offering one of the most beautiful views of Paris, will be open to the public for the first time on the seventh floor.

An architectural competition has already begun. Six projects will be selected by the end of the year, and the winner will be announced in 2024. The center will close in the summer of 2025, and renovation work will commence in early 2026, lasting until 2030.

By the way, the Pergamon Museum in Berlin will also close for extensive reconstruction, which will last for 14 years.
