  • For a change, in São Paulo, the exhibits good, different or famous are always crowded. With Silvio Santos display was no different. Although the collection was nice and wide, was so crowded that it was impossible to enjoy the visit in your fullness. I felt sorry for the elderly and wheelchair users .... In addition the exhibition had additional audios that could be accessed by QR Code on a cell phone, but the information of how to do it was practically nil and the audios completely inaudiveis ... The guides there present were more interested in keeping the flow fans people flowing to give guidance to people ... A shame.

  • A super well organized place, the exhibitions I visited such as Castelo RA Tim Bum and Tim Burton, were sensational! Place to visit with friends and family!

  • In recent years, the MIS had some of the most striking displays of SP. Museum is far from any Metro station, but the parking lot itself has reasonable price. In major exhibitions the queue is great, especially on weekends. The museum itself is small and walk during the exhibitions can be difficult.
