  • Great art collection and temporary exhibit. Some classics, Picasso, Renoir, Velásquez, Bosch, etc, as well as some great Brazilian artists. Good time coverage with pieces from several centuries...  more »
  • This is a spectacular art museum. The way they have displayed the art is innovative and thought-provoking, and they have a great diversity of pieces from a wide swath of history. I gave it 4 stars...  more »
  • The downstairs portion was quite fascinating with all of the different paintings as well as after the first few rows of the upstairs. The first few rows upstairs was all trying to make some sort of political statement (which is not what attracts me to art/museums). Other than this, the staff was lovely and museum was great!
  • in the early 2000s, returning on average 1-2 times a year. Exhibitions with renowned names and a large underground theater are hallmarks of the museum. In the free space it is possible to follow the outdoor sessions of Mostra SP and the fair, however on normal days the place is infested with people of bad nature. When passing there, be careful with your belongings
