  • Even in a region a degraded City Art Gallery is always a great choice. Next to the Light station of the subway.

  • Very interesting site, beautiful architecture and various exhibitions. Exhibitions for all tastes and is adjacent to the park light, to extend the ride. We went on a Wednesday and the entry was free. Easy access to subway.

  • It's a wonderful collection of Brazilian art from various periods till almost the present. The photography collection is especially worth a look. Great place to visit.
  • Recommended museum with a great collection of Brazilian art, both modern and classic. The steady collection is worth visiting, but often there are temporary exhibitions - which vary in quality. Hence 4 out of 5. The museum is situated next to a nice park that contains various interesting statues as well.
  • The art collection that I saw on view was pretty extensive and with pieces by great painters. I enjoyed going through the marvelous collections.
  • Not much of an art museum person and this one didn't stand out as anything special. Do walk around the gardens outside. Those are free for everyone.
  • Nice museum, arround 10 reais to enter, but too much contemporary art for myself
