  • I went to brunch on a Sunday and the ladies on the site were already well animated. The food was pretty tasty, but I found the face amount. The Museum is beautiful, prefer days with good weather for walking through the Foundation.

  • Beautiful Modernist House-turned-Museum. The deep art connoisseurs not impressive but the site is surrounded by a beautiful garden that deserves a visit. If it's cold and you can spend a little more please do not hesitate to book a place in the tea room with delicious breads and sweet wonderful!

  • 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.
