  • The museum is wonderful! Includes works by Tarsila do Amaral, Anita Malfati, Picasso, Matisse, Miro ´ and even Yoko Ono!! It has a nice coffee and not too expensive in the mezzanine. Finally, the last floor has a gazebo that gives you a beautiful view of the city of São Paulo!

  • I loved the remodeling of the building, with Brasilia style, where a lot of years worked a state traffic organ. All first-class facilities. Except for the parking lot. However, contemporary art does not make my taste. Really a totally black frame with a single stripe of 10 cm be an art.... It's not for me. It's true that we can find some pretty things, yes. And here, in this app, it's no place to discuss art, it's not. But it's worth the visit.

  • It is not bad, but nothing that struck me. BUT art is taste and therefore I am giving 4 stars. It is calm and you can enjoy the pieces, even on the weekend. Affordable snacks cafe in the lobby with limited menu and more expensive restaurant in the roof.
  • Good collection of contemporary art with interesting exhibits. Also admission is FREE, you can just walk right in without buying a ticket 👍
