  • Could not miss in Curitiba a touch of genius of architecture. The Museum of the eye as they call it even has the format of an eye suspended by columns, and underneath you can see the giant wooden cones.

Lots of culture, much to see, enjoy and learn, in and around Central magnificent of spectacular architecture, designed for the better appreciation of everything that can be displayed. Managing shape and curve, in this work of Niemeyer architecture, is amazing and is adapted to the functions of a Museum, giving life to travel and life experience. Is a place that there is that visit, unmissable, for who enjoy of the arts, the culture and the architecture.

  • 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
