This museum is in the park and the exhibits are constantly changing but on the day we visited the theme was a ‘mother earth’ one that dealt with the words of Saint Francis Assissi in a modern context. The exhibits are complex in their simplicity...More

Ibirapuera Park, the highlight of this neighbourhood,
is a family-friendly area to have a picnic, relax,
