We found this church literally across the plaza from the Pompideau Center Inside it was not crowded. It is an active church so you do need to be mindful that there are services that go on.

I stumbled upon this church as it is in a side street very near the Pompidou Centre. OK, it is secondary attraction in Paris, but well worth a visit if you're passing. This summer (2016) is doing free classical music concerts on certain evenings.
