His swirling forms and curving lines replaced European modernism's harshness with softness, as smoooth as Brazilian jazz. His work is sensuous, almost hedonistic. This museum houses... More

The museum has cool architecture, but if you do not arrive at the ticket office at 5:30 pm on the dot, you will not be able to buy tickets. If you get there at 5:32 PM, you will be out of luck. Look at the sign below in the photo.

Excellent exhibitions, and the building is really worth a visit just because of the architecture. The café is amazing and not that pricy.

When you like the work of the architect Oscar Niemeyer it is a must to visit it. Besides some temporal expositions of modern art, you can learn the work of this "master" with a display of some maquetes , designs . When interested duration 3 to 4 hours

The main building is correct and the art collection it is short. But the "eye building" it's really crazy and very interesting to visit the connection, under tunnel, between the two buildings and the exibition area inside the "eye building".

Thank Organizacion D
