  • One of the postcards of Sao Paulo. Not only the architecture is amazing, but you can find a good collection of national and international artists. It is a medium sized museum, however has a amazingly complete collection of Portinari and international artists, as well as an changing exposition.
  • The title and the text off pictures is on the glass plate BEHIND the pictures. It's nice to put the picture it's self in focus, but many like to read about the art too, same time as we enjoy the art.. But very good with a "open landscape" exhibition without walls.
  • Ótima atmosfera, vale a visita!
  • You can find Van Gogh's, Rembrandt's, Portinari's as well other national and international painters. Has a small permanent exhibit and several itinerary exhibits.
