Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Minas Gerais / Belo Horizonte / Museu De Arte Da Pampulha
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.
