Casa do Pontal Museum, Rio de Janeiro

(4.4/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Situated in a leafy, verdant grove, the evocatively tropical exterior of the Casa do Pontal Museum provides an aesthetic as sumptuous as the interior. A facility specializing in Folk Art, the museum’s collection of more than 8,000 sculptures and models--mainly collated by French designer Jacques Van de Beuque-- is representative of both rural and urban Brazilian cultures.

  • The Museum is far for those who live in the South but the way. It's a very interesting summary of brazilian culture, the result of 40 years of collecting stuff. Additionally the House is beautiful!

  • A exposição traz obras/esculturas de arte popular de diversos artistas. As obras estão separadas por temas, o que torna a visita bem interessante. O jardim do museu também é muito bonito. O acesso é um pouco escondido, mas não é difícil de achar ou chegar. (O ingresso custou 12 reais)
  • visitar um dia
  • Lindo pela localização maravilhosa e pelo acervo interessante. Nas deixe de ver a obra d'Os Gêmeos no estacionamento
