  • Beautiful with a very good collection. It's pretty big and there's always an exhibition in the eye which is accessible by lift. Worth the visit.

  • The Museum is a show inside and out! Is very worthwhile. In late afternoon, if it is not raining, the sunset is beautiful. In addition to the works of art, the Museum has a wonderful diner. I love coxinha chicken which is immense. In front of the Museum has several options of bars and cafés. A great place for a late afternoon. We shall with ctza!

  • I'd rather classic art and Oscar Niemeyer Museum always have modern art traveling exhibitions, so is not my favorite. However it has a great atmosphere! Good coffee, forest free area, street performers and is surrounded by good and cheap pubs.
  • A beautiful construction, touristic place worthy of a visit, with nice contemporary art expositions, and a park just beside it, you can easily spend a few hours there! The entrance is a bit pricey, but it's definitely worth it
  • Probably the only must-go museum in Curitiba, this is also know as The Eye and you will be able to learn more about world-famous architect Oscar Niemeyer projects along with several temporary displays of art collection. The middle room has a beautiful assembly of old Asian masks and sketches.
  • The eye museum, as curitiban people call it is awesome from the exterior but inside there isn't a lot to see. But if you like contemporary art is worth a visit.
  • Acreditem ou não, essa bizarrice é arte! Afinal, é livre a manifestação do pensamento e da expressão da atividade artística (art. 5°, incisos IV e IX, da Constituição Federal). Essas fotografias (as quais tive o desprazer de ver) estão em exibição no Museu Oscar Niemeyer, em Curitiba/PR.
