Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo reviews

It's worth a visit: interesting pieces of art, cafeteria and a good bunch of helpful volunteers that will guide you through the exhibits. Just as a suggestion: avoid the park located just behind the..... more »
When in São Paulo, just don't miss it! First quality art at a lovely building! I Highly recommend the visit! more »
I really enjoyed this museum! It is more or a traditional art museum as opposed to Museum of Art of São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand. I may personally like traditional art museums better, but I thought the Pinacoteca was a better experience. I enjoyed the layout and restoration of the building as well as the numerous balconies. The art on display was very good at showcasing Brazilian art of several eras. I highly recommend this museum.
Beautiful building with a surprising collection of Brazilian and European art. Both from the 19th century and modern art. Not always logically arranged, but that doesn't matter much. Wonderful atmosphere inside the building
This is truly a special São Paulo/Brazil museum. It’s affordable, it’s been renovated in a beautiful way, and the exhibits are varied and well-curated. I especially enjoyed an exhibit of Brazilian art through time, although I am not 100% convinced of the layout and how it moves visitors sequentially. At any rate, a must visit for art lovers in SP.
Pinacoteca is one of the most beautiful museums to visit in São Paulo. Its enormous exhibition truly has something for everyone. Don't forget to stop by the gift shop to purchase some amazing merch from the museum -- a simple form of investment for the arts.
It’s a great place with plenty of beautiful pieces of Brazilian artwork up for display. The exhibits were stunning and allowed for a close, emotional view of the art. Access to the property was free and protected by local government agents, metal detector screening is necessary to access the building.
