  • Every visit is a very rich experience! Well organized, including the possibility of buying tickets for the site, which happened in the queue, with the help of an angel who guided me! We quickly overcome the possible gigantic queue to buy at the time. It's a hint... The exhibition Tarsila do Amaral is beautiful, a treasure of contact, which allowed me to realize that in the Abapuru is not a beak, but closely realizes the arm of the artist leaning on his knee! Diving into history is a privilege! Beside the entrance there is a café Suplicy that allows a break in the exhibition!

  • I visited 3 exhibitions on the last visit: collection, Tarsila and Djanira, it is worth every second in the waiting line.

  • We went to see the exhibition of TARSILA DO AMARAL that is occurring this month of June of the current year at MASP. I inform you that on Tuesdays the ENTRANCE is FREE, but outside of this day you will pay 45.00 per person (WHOLE). I only suggest that the interested person arrives early on Tuesday, because they form long queues in the place to enter and we get to stay about 1 hours and twenty minutes in waiting to get in. Expired this step, RSS.... There is another queue that quickly forms after you enter the MASP which is at the entrance of the exhibition of TARSILA AMARAL, this smaller and with also shorter waiting time, i.e. when entering go straight to queue, because there is a limit number of people to see the work , where one enters another if someone comes out, and believe me, you take a great time to enjoy and read the stories of the beautiful works that are there. There are little stores that sell souvenirs from the MASP that in my opinion are expensive, nor the book marker that is paper is cheap, costing about three reais each. But whoever can buy, has good memories there to be acquired. There are places to snack inside, but you can not go to the rooms with drinks or food, having to consume there in the cafeteria.

  • The painting exposition is very interesting. It's particular the way the paintings are displaied, the crystal easels. The crystal easels puts paintings atop of a concrete bases, visitors walk through a kind of forest of pictures. The only uncomfortable thing is that the description of the paint is on the back side.
  • Good art museum. Has a unique way to display art (hung on glass slabs). Would recommend a 1 hour visit.
  • Absolutely amazing museum filled with a large variety of artwork collected from a diverse time range and artists. From modern pieces changing the definition of art to more classic pieces showcasing classical Brazilian techniques, this museum has a lot to offer visitors of any age or nationality. 4 levels and a very interesting open air design for the stairwells, the architecture is one of the most unique in the area. Low admission prices and friendly staff make for an absolutely impeccable experience.
  • This museum is a nice architectural art of itself, located opposite the nice forest park reminding me of Amazon jungle, but in the center of Sao Paulo, on the street of Pakistan. Very nice. Under the museum, there is an antique market open on Sundays.
  • What an incredible museum - absolutely loved it. When we visited, they had art from Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, etc. Tuesday’s are free. I highly recommend you stop here if you love art.
