  • Of course, the expectations are many, but I found the site unattractive. The exhibition was very good. Too bad you can't walk up the ramp. Could yield a great picture.

  • Is a large place, but small. There aren't that many spaces. In addition, there was a hidden part that we only found because I was looking for a bathroom.

  • On the day of the visit had two exhibitions both interesting for visitation, and other more abstract art with very interesting things. The Valley by the ride without doubt.

  • Incredible. One of the finest museums I have ever seen. Wonderful architecture.
  • Muito bom!
  • The building is wonderful but it was closed the day I visited.
  • Though the exhibit I saw inside was basic, this building is a must see because of its iconic architecture. Take time to revel in the space inside and under the curving passageway on the exterior of the building. True aesthetic brilliance.
  • Nice open environment and easy to access. Check if there's the main (upper floor) is open before planning a visit.
