I’m giving three stars because I came specifically for what looked like a beautiful Samba exhibit but it was all in Portuguese. No Spanish and no English. Couldn’t find any kind of booklet that might explain the exhibition in English either. The other main exhibit...More

Visited today and saw a few great pieces and one or two interesting compositions. There were a few placards in English and most display pieces were translated in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Tuesday’s are free and the store had a few cute items.

The collection is rather small. Not really worth if you expect lots of interesting art. However, if you are around on tuesday, the entrance is free. It also has a nice view.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
