Placing an art exhibit in a park is a fun and clever idea, especially for a modern art display. Surely, this gives more people the chance to view and benefit. But the small size and limited art displayed defines this as individual exhibits rather than...More

I really liked the museum because it is very big and beautiful. You can see pictures and sculp´tures. And the cafe is very good.

The building is interesting architecturally but the exhibitions so-so. I fear that this is a result of the lack of government support that arts & culture are experiencing in Brazil. The collection is primarily Brazilian modern & contemporary. But for 6R admission (less than $2...More
