  • The MAC is an excellent Museum, the building itself is a work of art, the collection is also very good, very attentive service, free entrance, is located in the Centre of Curitiba. Recommend book of 1 to 2 hours for a good use of the exhibitions. Also recommend for children.

  • Located in the Centre of Curitiba, almost in front of the square and close to the Avenida Palace Zacharias and XV de Novembro street pedestrian mall. Museum with two decks (no accessibility to the second floor) located in a historic building (construction of 1928). There's no parking. Free entry. Schedule of Tuesday to Friday (10 at 7:00 pm) and Saturdays and Sundays (10 at 4:00 pm). September/16 to March 17 will be in exhibition "Engravings". Works (Woodcuts, lithographs) from various renowned national and international artists (Guido Viaro, Poty Lazzarotto, Paul Garfunkel, Tomie Ohtake, among others). For those who like contemporary art, worth a visit.

  • Ambiente bacana.
  • Conhecer o Museu de Arte Contemporânea é bacana para quem está passeando pelo centro. Ele fica na esquina das ruas Desembargador Westephalen e Emiliano Perneta, atrás do Palácio Avenida. A casa vermelha, que abriga o museu, foi construída em 1928 para ser o Departamento de Saúde Pública do Paraná. O imóvel é tombado pelo Patrimônio Histórico Estadual, e desde 1974 é a sede do MAC. tem um bom acervo de arte contemporânea.
