Museu Casa do Pontal, Rio de Janeiro

(85 reviews on the web)
Art Museum
Situated in a leafy, verdant grove, the evocatively tropical exterior of the Museu Casa do Pontal 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.

  • Simply amazing Museum! The visit set to music makes much difference, gives a special touch and makes you realize a lot of things that a joint visit would not allow. Very good collection, is a great choice of leisure for all ages, and is located in a beautiful area.

  • The exhibition brings folk art sculptures/works of various artists. The works are separated by themes, which makes the visit quite interesting. The museum garden is also very beautiful. Access is a little hidden, but it's not hard to find or reach. (The ticket cost 12 dollars)
