Museum designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer, is worth visiting, fantastic architecture, always with interesting exhibitions. Check the museum's website on the day / week of the visit, which has plenty of exhibits and activities, well worth the visit for sure! Wide green area in the back, near the Pope's Grove.

Understandably reviews of this museum often focus on its design. It is strange: a giant eye on a base surrounded by water and behind it, a flat, long, rectangular slab. I'm not sure what the architect, Oscar Niemeyer, was trying to do. Create a museum building that is itself a work of art about looking? Or was it a sly... More

Oscar Riberio de Almeida Niemeyer Soares Filho (wow!, known as Oscar Niemeyer...was a Brazilian architect considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture....giving modernism a little samba flair! 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.

Go on saturdays - sunny day preferently. There will be a lot of things to enjoy beside the expositions. The families with their dogs - all kinds of dogd - all over the park connected to the museum. You still enjoy the groups dancing, playing music, etc. Inside the museu you will find at least an Oscar Niemeyer space to... More

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

This is a park to walk around and watch the sunset. It is close to downtown and worth visiting. There is z glass house with typical Brazilian plants. Very enjoyable!
