  • Unbelievable's area inside the Morumbi neighborhood. The Foundation is surrounded by green! The result of a beautiful work of reforestation in the region. The family save some surprises. Missed further explanation about the origin of the collection which deals with the Royal family. Very cool! I liked!

  • Very nice location with off-street parking. Perfect gardening with plants and trees. Do you feel that there is there zeal in the Park. Cafeteria very nice with great service. Limited menu with a few options of coffee. The cultural and artistic part leaves much to be desired. Rich parts but with very little acquis. Site deserves more investments and development. Remember Inhotim. Sao Paulo and the Foundation deserve more! Recommend!!

  • Arquitetura marcante e acervo riquíssimo. Muitas peças do período real brasileiro. Pagamos somente o estacionamento (R$15).
  • Brunch nota 10
  • Sensacional!
  • The architectonic relevant house transformed in museum with some beautiful peaces, with one downside, you cant take pictures inside the house. There's a really cozy cafe and a surprising park really worth visiting, and on selected Sundays they concerts. I recommend.
  • Modernist private house that is home to the important Fundação Maria Luísa e Oscar Americano.
