  • It is very interesting the whole proposal of the Museum and galleries are articulated in the space. Super recommend!

  • Art and nature combined perfectly. Is a little far from BH, but worth it. The trick is to go with clothes and comfortable shoes.

  • Many are the adjectives that can qualify Inhotim. In addition to the galleries, nature is a unique beauty, is itself a work of art. A place where you can find the silence broken only by the sounds of cicadas and the wind, a comparable surprise high-level exposures present-highlighted by Cildo Meirelles and Adriana Varejao.

  • 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
