Museu De Arte Da Pampulha, Belo Horizonte

3.6
Built by renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer - and therefore worthy of a visit for its architecture alone - and part of his Pampulha Architectural Complex, Museu De Arte Da Pampulha was once the hub of 1940s Belo Horizonte nightlife in its previous incarnation as a casino. However, in the aftermath of the outlawing of gambling in Brazil, the Cassino da Pampulha became Museu De Arte Da Pampulha, a multipurpose contemporary art museum that boasts a collection of approximately 1,600 works. Although the highlight of the collection is perhaps the work of Alberto da Veiga Guignard, you’ll also find pieces by numerous other prominent modern artists. Be sure to complement your artistic exploration with a stroll through the museum’s gardens or a stop off in the library.

  • It's worth architecture. And that's it! The building is beautiful and poorly enjoyed. Poor, poor exposure and dubious taste. You don't have a single café, restaurant or snack bar. The staff are all polite and helpful. There is a lack of better conservation of architectural heritage such as marble floors for example. On average you spend 10 minutes to get to know everything.

  • The Pampulha Art Museum is part of the architectural and historical ensemble of Lagoa da Pampulha. Very beautiful place and full of stories.

  • Beautiful construction and wonderful location overlooking the lake. The museum is also a good starting point to take a walk along the lake river. There are several animals that you can spot walking in the small garden of the museum. No WiFi available.
  • Could have more electronic art.
