  • Near the Luz station and the Parque da Luz (which also deserve a visit), the Pinacoteca is a great leisure option. The architecture of the building is beautiful! The collection of works is incredible! One of the most unreadable places to visit in São Paulo!

  • Beautiful place, but requires care of the belongings... The park next door has beautiful sculptures and a huge garden but is occupied by prostitutes and drug users.....

  • Well maintained. Nice pieces of Brazilian Art and International Artists. There is a place for kids interact with art through activities. There is a beautiful and clean restroom and a good café with vegan food. Easy access. The Subway station (Luz) is right in front of the entrance. Excellent price ticket.
  • The pinacoteca was beautiful. We visited all the major musuems during our stay, and this one was hands down our favorite. The exhibits varied and offered something for everyone. Lots of natural light and beautiful brick walls allowed you to sit and take breaks in peace 🙏
