A palace and a former bus station house rehabbed as gallery space house the MAR. Timely exhibitions display contemporary art from local artists alongside historic Latin American masters. A walkway connecting the two buildings is symbolic of the connection between Brazilian and international art. The MAR seeks to foster this connection and draw attention to Brazil’s significant contribution to the art world.

  • The museum works in an incredible space, composed of two interconnected buildings, being a former and a contemporary. The exhibition is composed primarily of photographs, beautiful of course, but it is strange that a museum has just arts pictures. However the view from the top floor is a spectacle and alone is worth the visit.

  • Has amazing works. Unique beauty. There are times when display exhibitions of different artists, it pays to be informed before you go. Stay in the same square that the Museum of tomorrow. Worth going to in the combo. Tuesdays admission is free
