  • It's closed, we went to the train to go up to Cristo and hope to visit the museum while waiting, it is still listed in a recent guide book, I was disappointed it was closed  more »
  • When I was at the corcovado for the last time, at the time of the Olympics, took some people to know it, because it is next to the cable car. Man the entrance, little to show, but it is international tourism.

  • When we arrived it was closed permanent. A shame to not be able to enter to see the exhibition. It seems q the building is for sale. However within your garden, there is a café where all of their products are organic. Coffee is spectacular and very personalized atemcion.

  • I don't like naive art. I went with my kids that have shown moderate interest. Good to go after climbing the Christ Redeemer of trains. There's a café where they serve a good cappuccino.

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.
