  • I admit that modern and contemporary art is not to my taste, but in MAM found interesting works that highlight the aesthetic value exposed in the works of the artists. Recommend in order to get your own conclusions.

  • We stopped at this empty Museum just because free time remained before the flight and the airport is only a short distance from him. Cute three-storey museum, opened in the early 1950s On his inspection enough hours. The modern Brazilian artists, many installations, but generally like that sadly there is no raisins. in the collection nor the new exhibition Museum himself only cute. I do not recommend
