  • Interesting visit but when I went I didn't took more than 20 minutes, few works to be shown. They should add more frames, what interested me going was a bizarre works that I didn't see when I went.

  • I went to visit the Corcovado with husband and in-laws, and our cable car would come out in 1:00. Went for a quieter place to wait for the shipment and we came across this gem of a Museum! Beautiful and delicate paintings, with the best of the naîf art. Demaaais the Valley visit. In addition, there is a café/bistro in the back, which offers breakfast buffet per person, or separate applications. There is also lunch. All products of organic origin and very neat. There is a Panel to be photographed as naîf. Fun!!
