  • The construction on the outside is different, I particularly fancied on the outside; already on the inside, makes a nice visual effect.

  • The two times I visited the exhibitions were terrible and the February, honestly, even if it's not any profound admirer of art, I didn't see any beauty in the exhibition, but the sailing tour to admire the architecture of the Museum, which is beautiful, both on the outside. in my opinion, lack information and primarily guided tours in order to better understand the works of art. The day we were there was an official or local guide. only the guards who stand at the entrance.

  • The current exhibition (Feb/17) it's horrible and it's not nice to go with children. many unpleasant scenes, with photos and images of penises. Nothing to go with children. The environment itself is nice but the current exhibition is horrible.

  • 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.
