This wonderful small museum in a must see if you want to understand Brazil! Created by Lucien Finkelstein, his personal archive of Naif Art makes us most of the collection. The museum is also kid friendly with several interactive parts.

Even if you are not an art buff I think you will enjoy this museum. It is quite small, it doesn't cost a lot to get in and the exhibits are good fun. Go for it.

For everyone who visits the Corcovado, should also take a little bit time to see the museum. With the ticket of the Corcovado train you pay only half of the entrance. The exhibition is very interesting.

With your Corcovado train ticket you get a discounted access to the museum which is 1 block away. The museum is small but has really interesting paintings specially one mural which displays some important history milestones.
