It's free and most likely on your way already... but if not, simply don't bother. The building has a very nice, modern design from the outside, but really nothing to expect in it.. There is a very nice tarasse on the side of the building......More

They have utilized technology to create art. The human interaction was great. A must visit for every age group.

Located on Eixo Monumental, this concrete building is half a sphere stucked to the ground, surrounded by a circular ramp. Seen from the outside, the set recalls Saturn and its rings. As to the inside, if you've got time, have a go.
