When the museum opened in 1977, it was the cause for many heated debates, it was controversial and therefore earned itself nicknames like the "Notre Dame of the Pipes" or just an "Oil refinery".
No matter how controversial the Center Pompidou was or still is, the idea behind the museum’s creation is definitely honourable! Former President Georges Pompidou wanted to create a place where all citizens - whether poor or rich - could have free access to contemporary art and culture.
