  • The museum is a Must-See in Curitiba. The design of the museum was made by Niemyer - one of the best architects ever born. He died with 104 years and had really great projects in his life.  more »

  • The museum itself is very strange, like everything Niemeyer ever designed, but it's worth the visit. There's always at least one interesting exhibition, probably more than one. The workshops for children are great. The green area around it receives dozens of people with dogs on warm Sundays and is even nicer than the museum itself then. The café and the store are nice too, though expensive.
  • To visit this, you need to access the tunnel if the other museum first. Great expositions with deep meaning. Sit back and reflect, every sensation helps fruition.
  • There are always nice things to look at, really cool architecture. A good place for big and small ones. A little bit of culture has never hurt anyone.
  • Amazing architecture with a beautiful space for modern art. collection and exhibitions were impressive too. A must see in Curitiba
  • Impressive architecture, lovely museum! At the backyard of the museum lots of families and youngsters gather for picnics, music making and walk their dogs, extremely cozy place.
