  • Nice atmosphere, clean and organized. Great to see some more of the history of Brazil.

  • An interesting exhibition, ancient art and other horrible, modern art. The visit should be scheduled as the poster exhibition, personally I hate modern art. But the combination of new and old works, pleases everyone.

  • Next to the Museum of tomorrow, the sea option is a must. In December 2016 had several exhibitions, featured the trajectory of Princess Leopoldina: beautiful. Located in the revitalized the port, access can be done by Metro, tram, car, bus, etc. The local account with café and restaurant. The region also has several power supply options. Worth visiting.

  • It seems to be a promising exhibition space and it has some interesting exhibitions. However half the space it is still being set up so being charged 20 reals for this seems expensive. The rooftop holds some really nice views of the surrounding areas.
  • One of the newest museums in the city, M.A.R. is definitely an option in Rio. The architectural solution to join the two buildings created a real masterpiece. Arts school and museum, nice café and shop on the ground floor.
  • Lugar Incrível !
  • The museum has a free access rooftop with a great view of Mauá plaza and the harbour region, including the newest Tomorrow's Museum. At some dates per month, there is a Party called Mar de Música, with free concerts and music presentations at the main floor which can be enjoyed also outside of the building.
  • A museum that merits a visit. The landscape view at the roof level is amazing. I liked particularly the integration between modern and old architecture.
