  • Coleção de obras é sensacional! As obras em video merecem destaque! O terraço é lindo, muito bom para fotos. Apenas o acesso por meio da passarela que aparenta ser meio largado pela segurança pública.
  • The museum has a good collection of different kinds of artworks and has a rooftop with a beautiful view of the Ibirapuera Park and the Ibirapuera Avenue. The picture was taken on a rainy afternoon. Free entrance. The only downside was that some floors still had exhibits under construction.
  • It's worth to visit. You can always find something unusual.
  • Good artworks ruined by bad curatorship and even worse lighting. It was like it wasn't even open and half the lights were off. It just didn't work. There were some beautiful artworks in the collection but it pained me to see them in such a setting. I would say pop by if nothing better to do or if there is a good temporary exhibition but I definitely would prioritise MASP and MuBE.
  • The variety and quality of art was excellent. It was a relief that everything was written in English and Portuguese. I will go back some day.
