  • Excelente espaço, excelente passeio.
  • One of the best attractions (and a great surprise) in Curitiba. Nice architecture and great spaces. The only issue is that when I visited more than half of the spaces were empty, so I wish they can get more attractions and exhibitions to make the visit even better!
  • Nice and informative for 12 reais. On every Wednesdays and on the first Thursday of each month the museum is for free.
  • Great place. The vastness of the building designed by Oscar Niemeyer is unbelievable. Avoid the weekends and holidays, when the lines are terribly long. Wednesdays the admittance is free.
  • One of the biggest museums in Latin America and a great place to just hang out on a sunny weekend
