Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro

3.5
Museum of Modern Art houses one of the most comprehensive collections of modern and contemporary Brazilian art, as well as having a significant international presence. As you explore the exhibition space, venture into the beautiful garden on the patio, which boasts an abstract landscape designed by Brazilian architect Roberto Burle Marx. Marx is also responsible for the beautiful gardens of Parque do Flamengo that surrounds the museum. With rows of angled concrete ribs and large windows designed by a pioneer of modern architecture Affonso Reidy, the building itself is a work of art and will leave you with a lasting impression. Inside you'll also find a cinema, photography exhibits, and the Laguiole Restaurant, which infuses French and Brazilian cuisine.

  • A beautiful screenplay by downtown Rio. Next to the monument to the Gl, Alive, and River Outeiro da Glória, with easy access by subway and parking, the Museum has always some interesting exposition with a very nice view of the landfill and sea plus a very nice architecture. Finally, a nice restaurant in the building.

  • The space is huge and Nice, there is a park near where it would be very rich to make a picnic or something like that. The Museum's collection seemed well for what you pay. My favorite part was photographs of Brasilia and its cobstruccion. There were also some pictures of burning fuel very choras. I recommend go Sunday to large families because paid fourteen reales by the whole family.

  • The ride lasted a few hours. We went to da Glória do Outeiro Church. Then we go to the Aterro do Flamengo, the monument of the Gl and follow to the MAM. Everything is very close and we can still see the Marina da Glória and the Guanabara Bay. The Museum is a work of art. Beautiful, fascinating architecture, a wonderful garden.
