Centre Pompidou has an identity crisis

Whenever I am in Paris, I always make some time to visit the grand Centre Pompidou. After four decades, the modern art museum with its inside-out construction is looking less cutting-edge, but it still boasts one of Europe’s best contemporary and modern art collections. However, it seems that I am not the typical Paris tourist. The Centre Pompidou has been experiencing an identity crisis since it can’t manage to compete with the city’s wildly popular and over-touristed sites, such as the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. To counteract the drop in attendance, the museum has embarked on a novel PR campaign that just might boost its standing with visitors.
