Art Museum
The UFO-shaped Museum of Contemporary Art exhibits works by contemporary Brazilian and international artists. The unusually shaped structure is the brainchild of none other than famed architect Oscar Niemeyer and, with a collection of over 1,200 artworks, remains one of the largest and most significant institutions of its kind in the country. Looking from the museum's observation room you can see the bay below, the city of Rio de Janeiro, and the surrounding mountainous landscape. The museum restaurant is a great place for discussing the art over a meal or a drink. Put Museum of Contemporary Art at the forefront of your travel plans using our Niteroi travel itinerary maker.

  • The Museum has a very nice architecture, the view is very nice and worth taking good pictures. The exhibition is small but very nice, worth it.

  • With a unique vision and structure designed by the master of brazilian architecture (Niemeyer). The MAC is one of the best museums in the metropolitan area of Rio, always offering good exhibitions and events highlighting the beauty of the surroundings.

  • We were alone, in public transport from Copacabana(metro, Ferry y bus 48b, y recorrimos los hermosos alrededores deel museo, y las vistas maravillosas desde ahí, se ve toda la costa de Rio!) The Museum is a work of Neymeier, fabulous architect who designed Brasilia. The Museum has a very interesting sample, but above all its construction is great, it looks like a flower that emerges from the sea, or a flying plate... Beautiful ride!

  • Nice destination for those visiting Niteroi. Best view of Rio de Janeiro skyline.
  • Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum. Alone the Oscar Niemeyer's architecture is wonderful and unique. Best and most famous building in Niteroi.
  • Incredible building and views. The exhibits seem to rotate a lot. They were a bit hit and miss when I was there. Worth visiting and just R$10.
  • What a beautiful place this is. It's amazing how architecture can be so mesmerizing when put together with an incredible landscape.
  • Ótima pokestop
