  • Great place, both by the exhibition spaces and the external area, which calls the attention by the exotic architecture of building annex (the "eye"). Recommend!

  • Quite a nice place to visit if you're sightseeing. We went on a Sunday afternoon and entrance was free. The surroundings of the museum are also quite good. On that day e were surprised by the fact that at the garden of the museum a lot of citizens were roaming with their pets
  • It is an amazing place to visit and take your beloved ones together. It has got plenty of paintings and sculptures there. I got a free ticket on my visit day. It is worth the visit, always.
  • An amazing building! Oscar Niemeyer is one of the best architects in the world. He has contributed a lot the the evolution of the building around the world!
  • It's easy to get there using Linha Turismo. We got off the bus to visit that great example of modern architecture. It is easy to get on the next bus later on, as they leave every 30 minutes.
  • A must see if you visit Curitiba! Nice exibition! 1- 2h minimum needed to see the most of it.
