MAR, Rio de Janeiro

(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I really liked it but not as rich. Buy the Passport tomorrow + SEA Museum. Get out and are close. Many works of art are cool but lack instructions.

  • If you are going to Rio, you should go to Museu do Amanhã. Besides all interesting expositions , the scenery is worth to be seen.

  • 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.
