  • Spaced works, the place doesn't fail. A bit Motley, of odds and ends, but we're having an interesting time. The 8th floor offers spectacular enough, circular, views of Sao Paulo. Admission is free. It's not bad at all.

  • I love this Museum! Super recommend! A great time to make friends, family or even alone. An immersion in the world of Contemporary Arts from 1950 to the present day. Wonderful works of renowned artists here and in the world. In the end, I recommend a quick stop at Mezaninno where has a delicious cheese bread and amazing sweets.

  • On the 8 floor a privileged views, and for my best by far is the seventh by pictures and artists represented a wonder that it may not be highly recommended visit

  • Nice modern museum with 5 floors of exhibition. 8 floor great view on skyline. 7 floor nice international paintings 1900-1950. 6 floor 1950-2000. No cover. Nice bar.
  • Very eclectic collection of art. A great museum! The cafe is surprisingly good!
  • If you go to Ibirapuera park you can visit the Museum of Contemporary Art - MAC/ USP which is in 7 floors. You can see art exhibition, but unfortunaly there were no English descriptions of the art work, except for a paragraph by the curators in each section. So you get general idea about the artist but not about a specific painting or sculpture. The view from the 8th floor is amazing. You can see the city from the top. And there is no entrance fee.
  • Nice location nice collection
  • Huge museum with many different kinds of art work and even a part designated for young artist Having this kind of space many different exhibition concepts are united in one building
