One of the largest modern and contemporary art museums in the world, the Pompidou Centre in Paris, is to close for five years of renovations from 2025.

Its groundbreaking "inside out" structure, which displays pipework on the outside, has suffered serious wear and tear.

It's the building's first major upgrade and will cost €262 million to update its structure for fire safety, disability access and general repairs.

The Pompidou houses work by renowned artists including Picasso and Kandinsky.
