  • It's worth going just for the building. Despite being on the verge of cracolandia, worth going to meet the for and the exhibitions it hosts. just be careful not to take anything valuable and be cautious on round-trip. next to the Park of light, also another attraction in the region.

  • It is a very nice place, we breathe a Bohemian atmosphere that blends perfectly with this sector of the city. Recommended!

  • Transitional and permanent exhibition not to be missed, in large facilities and very well cared for. Offers free parking. Can't stay off the agenda of any tourist.

  • Good place for those more appreciative of arts. Good structure and staff. Easy access too, for the train station is right in front of it. The stores on the place are expensive, but the beverages and juices are worth it.
  • Very good building in SP, it's a shame Praça da Luz, in front of it isn't well cared, also the museum should have the elevator working more often, in 5 years I visit it, I saw it able to work only once and it was the last time I was in the museum, one month ago. It is my favorite old building in SP.
  • Great place for some educational art! The museum offers lots of comparative opportunities among pieces from different eras and artists. Great for kids!
  • I just love this place. It is a must go!!! Also it is free on Saturdays. Go there by subway is waaaaay easier but be careful with the pickpockets around if you want to walk in that park in front of the museum...
  • A wonderful place to visit and enjoy classical music. Unfortunately, the region outside the building is decrepit and it is very unsecure.
