  • A great place for a cultural visit. There are always exhibitions of various artists, both national and international. A place not to be missed.

  • The Museum is just amazing. The spatial concept transcends architecture. An anthropological dome of Grand Master Niemeyer.

  • Work aesthetically impressive, Valley photos taken of the Cathedral Museum next door. However the interior leaves something to be desired, little explored with exhibitions and services such as cafes and souvenir shops. Worth the visit without many expectations. Quick and external photos are worth.

  • 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.
