  • 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.
