  • Every visit is a very rich experience! Well organized, including the possibility of buying tickets for the site, which happened in the queue, with the help of an angel who guided me! We quickly overcome the possible gigantic queue to buy at the time. It's a hint... The exhibition Tarsila do Amaral is beautiful, a treasure of contact, which allowed me to realize that in the Abapuru is not a beak, but closely realizes the arm of the artist leaning on his knee! Diving into history is a privilege! Beside the entrance there is a café Suplicy that allows a break in the exhibition!

  • The painting exposition is very interesting. It's particular the way the paintings are displaied, the crystal easels. The crystal easels puts paintings atop of a concrete bases, visitors walk through a kind of forest of pictures. The only uncomfortable thing is that the description of the paint is on the back side.
  • Good art museum. Has a unique way to display art (hung on glass slabs). Would recommend a 1 hour visit.
