  • A beautiful museum in Rio. Maybe not the first few days but if you stay longer in Rio, do go visit. You will not regret. 
  • The mansion that now houses the Museum was once the seat of the State Government of Rio de Janeiro. The site is going through a revival to best tell this important piece of political history and display their collections. Visit nice.

  • Ahead has a well wooded square! Look before the exhibition schedule. Interesting! But, very small compared to other places.

  • This modern art museum has outstanding and also terrible exibitions. So, check it out what is in exibition before going there. From the outside area you have an increadible view of Guanabara Bay.
  • Rio's modern art museum. It's pretty big and usually is home of bazaars and artist meetups as well of exhibitions. Definitely worth a while checking out if you want to know local artists' work. Do search what is on display beforehand, since it might be a little tricky to get there/leave on foot.
  • I was really looking forward to visiting this museum. However, prior to paying our ticket a lady explains that HALF of the exhibition is closed due to renovations. I assumed her next sentence would be "and because of that we are offering half price tickets." OH NO!!!! She wanted us to pay FULL price for a HALF of an exhibition!!! How does this make ANY sense? I even asked her for a discount just in case she somehow forgot to tell us about some type of discount. She confirmed that we would pay FULL price for a HALF of an exhibition. Needless to say, we did not go see the half show for the full price. Ridiculous!
  • Nice skating grounds, challenging and stuff. The expos never been there. Nice place to take pictures, take a walk during the day. When not very well patrolled it's always full of hobos hanging out.
  • Lindo museu
