  • This museum is magnificent. All facilities and galleries are special. Embedded in the midst of magnificent umavegetacao is a pleasure for the eyes. When walking through the mini malls found other sculptures that carry the expression of each artist. The restaurants, the Organization, the staff, all of first world. A place that everyone has to meet.

  • The Inhotim is one of the most prestigious museums in the world and certainly the best Brazilian/South American Museum. The ideal is to have three or four days to visit the Museum (2), serra do Rola-Moça (1) and the White House (1), in Brumadinho. In addition to the facilities and galleries, the landscaping and the collection of Inhotim Palm trees are a work. Good for family, friends, couples, groups. If you have only one or two days, worth the investment in the pass of golf carts collectives, leading rapidly from one installation to another. Take bathing suit, because it is possible to bathe in some works.

  • How come this is not in the Eyewitness Guide to Brazil from 2012? It's the best kept of secrets. This is a paradise for lovers of contemporary art and/or sub-tropical gardens. Check out the website. I...  more »
  • Vast art installation with immaculately maintained gardens. Contemporary and modern art, impressive architecture in the middle of rural Minas Gerais. Large parking area, but rough roads getting there. Some parts are wheelchair accessible, but mostly not. Prepare for walking fairly long distances in the sun, uphill and downhill. There is a reasonable entry fee with an electric cart tour option for extra. There are two self-serve buffets and some gift shops inside.
  • A wonderful place and one of Brazil's must-sees. The natural and man-made art here is beautiful! Every medium and style is explore on this refreshingly modern 340-acre plot. The food is good, too. My one complaint is that there weren't any tours despite them being scheduled the day of my visit.
  • I really enjoyed the walking around and the scenery. I think the art was a bit weird most of the time, but then again, that's art for you.
  • Beautiful and really special place, with a vast and impressive collection of works, installation pieces and gardens. One of my favourite places in the world!
  • The best Botanic + Museum in Brazil. Highly recommended
