What I liked the most on this museum is that you can interact with art on the exhibitions. I bought the tickets online for both Museu do amanhã and MAR for R $32,00. Its location, price and view are excellent!

The museum has a nice view of Praca Maua on its top floor, for that it is worth to go. The exposed art is not art, a bunch of things, bad taste, out of everything, maybe 4 or 5 peaces are ok. If you are...More

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
