Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro

4.0
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Rio de Janeiro holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museum of Modern Art and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A good walk in Rio, it is worth visiting and also is close to other attractions such as the Museum of tomorrow and the river Aquarium.

  • The MAM-RJ always has some nice exposure going on, in addition to a permanent collection very interesting!

  • Will depend on the period and exposure that you come to visit, but usually worth it. Although he gets basically opposite the museo of tomorrow, he is more empty account fee in most cases be more expensive.

  • HOLD YOUR KIDS ! They can fall from 10m to the floor because they can pass under the parapet which is 1,2m night. This is the central stairs, and nothing indicates the danger on the dark floor ! Beyond that only the modern architecture and the coffee are interesting in this place. The "exhibition" is smaller than any of the 200 private galleries in Paris, when entrance is free.
  • enjoyed a lot. very good
  • Wonderful site, peacefull & calm! (Day time, mostly ; ) On the look out to find good company & friendship K3 Rio ! @clube_contato
  • I was really looking forward to visiting this museum. However, prior to paying our ticket a lady explains that HALF of the exhibition is closed due to renovations. I assumed her next sentence would be "and because of that we are offering half price tickets." OH NO!!!! She wanted us to pay FULL price for a HALF of an exhibition!!! How does this make ANY sense? I even asked her for a discount just in case she somehow forgot to tell us about some type of discount. She confirmed that we would pay FULL price for a HALF of an exhibition. Needless to say, we did not go see the half show for the full price. Ridiculous!
  • It was an interesting place. Very well organized, very nice to view.

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.
