  • Excellent Museum, my girlfriend and I spent hours there and didn't see the time passing. Multiple environments and exhibitions of various themes and authors.

  • The Museum has impressed on the outside. Besides the architecture, the preservation and careful with the exterior of the Museum are worth noting. As for the interior, the tip is: visit the Museum with time. There are many exhibitions and willingness to give is to know all, and the Museum that encourages you, as each site offers a different architectural surprise. The exhibitions "memories of the streets" and were the most interesting Niemeyer for me. A cool tip is in front of the eye, across the street, there is an area with several food trucks.

  • 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
