  • Several art galleries, open-air exhibitions in major galleries. Lots of greenery, very well cared for. Very large site with trails of access to all galleries, buildings, places of interest. It has 2 restaurants, snack bars, several sanitary. Have a beautiful store with fine and exclusive articles. Haven't booked your cart at the entrance and regretted the foot it's pretty hard to see everything in one day ... Attentive staff, but in my opinion there are few. Worth the entry. $44, $22 ... Unique place.

  • Incredible, a mixture of museum and botanical garden. Well worth visiting Brazil just to spend a couple of days exploring Inhotim. The family and I loved every second of our day at this wonderful open air art gallery. Totally different from any other place in Brazil or the world. Here visitors are free to walk, or ride on carts, to explore this "new wonder of the world". There are tour guides to assist or you can create your own itinerary. Along the way there are top quality restaurants and snack bars to satisfy even the most demanding costumers. I found it very clean and well maintained. Which is quit unusual for Brazil. With the aid of a tour map anyone can have a day of adventure exploring the details that make Inhotim one of the best museums of its class.
  • Would be a 5/5 perfect place to visit, considering its natural exhuberant beauty and all, but the staff is slightly underprepared. Hard to find someone who speaks English or Spanish (even at the store!) and some of them kept talking loudly inside galleries, which should be silent places. Other than that, it's an amazing experience even for those (like me) who are not enthusiasts of contemporary art, so I totally recommend everyone to go there! :) Make sure you got 2 days spare to visit it all!
  • The place is awesome and I would be there everyday if I could. And I suggest people to visit. The four stars are because of food. There aren't many vegetarian options for snacks accessible (that was what happened in my last visit, at least)
  • Unbelievable gardens and art exhibition. Wonderful place to hike. Shuttles available for nominal fee. Park is large and a shuttle comes in handy to expedite your visit
  • Inhotim is a museum of museums and gardens. It's a truly unique experience. It's incredibly focused on tiny details. Every building is a work of art of its own. The place is huge. They offer the alternative of visiting without buying the electric cart ticket. Buy it! You won't have time to see a lot if you don't. I also strongly recommend staying next to the museum so that you van visit at least two days in a row. I wish I could have stayed more than two days.
