  • Amazing modern art museum containing some of the most cutting edge pieces of art work in the area. Every year they sponsor new developing artists to showcase their work bringing to light the definition of a modern art museum. Admission prices are extremely low and the staff is extremely friendly. They even sponsored a dance show outside of the museum with street performers form all over the city congregating here to show off their moves. Some of them quite impressive and a large crowd was gathering outside. Inside is a mostly tranquil Oasis and the system was broken so they were letting people in for free as well. There's also no admission on Saturdays which makes it a great spot to swing by and take in the artwork. Parking is plentiful nearby but may fill during peak periods.
  • Wow! This is a must-visit when visiting Sao Paulo. I would say that if you are intrested to improve your knowledge in Brazilian history you will become educated of the Brazilian history. An history for many not recognize. During my visit I became sad. After the visit I feel that my knowledge have improved. The only detail I feel that the museum can improve is the information. My Portuguese is not the best. So if the information could also be written In English I will definitely visit the museum again .
