Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • Not necessarily the most beautiful Museum of Rio, a bit old and not very lively, but there are some beautiful pieces with lots of inspiration and originality on the floor, at the end of the course. In the end this gives another idea of Brazilian handicrafts. Bar / snack at the output and a small shop with a few beautiful products (sculptures, fabrics...). See a rainy day!
