The Centre Pompidou in Paris, one of the largest modern and contemporary art museums in the world, will close for renovations for five years from the end of 2025 until 2030, due to the wear and tear of its nearly half-century-old building.
The renovation will cost over €260 million to keep up with newer Parisian institutions. The renovation will include the complete renovation of the building’s facades, the optimisation of the building’s energy, the installation of fire safety measures and improvements to the accessibility of the building for people with reduced mobility. During the closure, some of the artworks will be moved to other museums in Paris and over 100 exhibition projects are planned for regions throughout France. The museum will begin to relocate its staff of approximately 2,000 in the autumn of 2024, and the redeployment to other museums and institutions is “under study”. The reopening will include a new space for young people, an enlarged library, and the reutilisation of the 21,000 square metres of parking spaces. The cultural project accompanying the technical renovation of the Centre Pompidou is estimated to cost an additional €180 million, of which €19 million has already been financed.
