  • I have visited several times the MIAN and took friends to meet him. In addition to the permanent exhibition, there was always some other exposure happening at the Museum. There are fantastic, a huge panel paintings telling the story of Brazil. It is a pity that is closed. The Rio and Brazil only have to lose with the malfunctioning of this museum.

  • The collection is magnificent and there met the most expressive artists naif of Brazil. She was one of the few institutions that favored this artistic manifestation. Unfortunately, by not telling any allowance, went on sale.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
