Museu De Arte Da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte

3.6
Built by renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer - and therefore worthy of a visit for its architecture alone - and part of his Pampulha Architectural Complex, Museu De Arte Da Pampulha was once the hub of 1940s Belo Horizonte nightlife in its previous incarnation as a casino. However, in the aftermath of the outlawing of gambling in Brazil, the Cassino da Pampulha became Museu De Arte Da Pampulha, a multipurpose contemporary art museum that boasts a collection of approximately 1,600 works. Although the highlight of the collection is perhaps the work of Alberto da Veiga Guignard, you’ll also find pieces by numerous other prominent modern artists. Be sure to complement your artistic exploration with a stroll through the museum’s gardens or a stop off in the library.

  • The location is beautiful, a postcard from BH. But there's no way to have a place as cool as this, especially the proposal that loads and be so poor culturally how many don't even know it in your structure has a small theater. Should be fully inserted into the culture of Minas.

  • History Museum, small but well maintained. There's a theater with acoustics interesting at one point. Worth knowing.

  • Place for those who love art and not the traditional art, bitola in thought, is a museum with plenty of room and very pleasant.

  • A little empty but the place is worth the trip from the center
  • A different place to visit. Check what is displayed before going there.
  • Magestic building thanks to genius Oscar Niemeyer, although the exhibit wasn't that interesting and it is quite small. Hard to get there if you are not driving there. They could do something more interesting with the cafeteria, since it was empty and I was really looking for a soda...
