  • Only. The Inimá de Paula Museum has a good collection of art, with the main exhibition on the first floor of Inimá de Paula itself, among its works there are explanations about the painter's life and artistic period, some more focused on Expressionism, others focused on Criticism due to the dictatorship period, there are other works in this collection. There is also the section of autos portraits, which are separated from the Great Hall, it is very worthwhile to check these as well. The second floor, when I visited in June 2019, there was an exhibition named the ÁfricaBrasil roots of Alyson Carvalho and curated by Cláudia Jannotti, in which photographs were exhibited bringing the black representativeness of our country. With touches of our history and its own history brought elements that portrayed well what they wanted to pass, including bringing self knowledge through the photographs. On the top floor, and for me the best exhibition was the Madonas Brasileiras, in which they depicted the milk-nannies that are the basis of this country. Well chosen all the pieces, with a text of reflection, in which can not ignore the work done by them. The establishment has a great structure, accessibility and well-trained staff and very good people.
