Museum of Contemporary Art, Niteroi

4.3
#1 of 12 in Museums in Niteroi
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 planner .

  • Worth the visual and the view always. A relaxed ride with the family, drinking coconut water, and enjoy.

  • We went for a walk in Niterói and, as it should go, we know the MAC. Super worth it, despite the heat of the day (Oh, there's air conditioning). The view is wonderful!!!

  • In terms of exposure found a little weak, but the visual you have inside is worth the ride. The ticket costs $10.00 and on Wednesdays admission is free. Residents of Niterói also has free admission, by presenting a proof of residence and photo ID. Across your back, next to the Windows, there's a huge Bank, where we can sit and spend hours chatting with friends, the place has a good air conditioning that makes the visit more enjoyable still.
