  • The Museum building is beautiful, and has some interesting exhibitions. Admission is free, but I felt that we were constantly followed by security guards, which became nasty.

  • 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.
