  • Even though I live in Curitiba for a while, just knew the MON through typical tour of the city. But in the gastronomic fair could learn more about the environment! Pleasant climate for children to have fun and to walk with the dog.

  • Easily accessible by public transport (bus tour we went), the vision of the structure indicates that we are facing a great work of art. In your interior, the richness of our culture. Is a must visit!

  • 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
