  • The building is a former prison, mid-renovation, and it shows. In a less than interesting area. Very striking building, though. The exhibitions were pretty average, I thought, but then I'm not the wor...  more »
  • After you visit the Legislative Palace, worth a little walk to this unique Museum. It was built where an old jail. The contemporary works of art (including Brazilians) are in their cells. You can see the spaces that were not retired and the internal courtyard of the Chair preserved. Well marked this bold proposal.

  • Impressive place. It was a jail many years ago, and now each cell is one artist's personal display. Recommended.
  • Amazing Jameson's Festival StPatrick's.
  • Seeing how the space has been transformed from a prison to a modern art museum alone is worth the visit. Downstairs, you can walk into what used to be cells and see work from a different artist. Overall the art was interesting and culturally relevant. Plus, it's FREE. Just go! It's neat!
  • It uses to be a prision, so the builing is pretty cool on its own. To top it off, they turned it into an contemporary art gallery. Worth the visit!
  • Excellent cultural place. Will be good if the extensions will be opened soon. We will think to make an visual exhibition there soon.
