  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Loved it! If you enjoy modern art like me reserve at least 2h for the tour
  • Not too big exhibition and some really interesting modern art. Great experience.
