  • Love the environment of this tiny museum. The building tells more than the some exhibits, though. Worth a visit.

  • This museum is one of the oldest in São Paulo. The art collection is huge, each room is overflowing with different pieces. In a way it is actually quite overwhelming and intense, it’s difficult to digest the sheer amount. There is no flowing journey or consistency. There is deep contrast not just room to room, but often throughout a room. You would need to spend an entire day here to truly begin to appreciate and digest what’s on display. It’s quite remarkable at the same time. I recommend a visit.
  • This is the coolest art museum. It combines a bit of classic art to explain the modern approach of artists. The building itself is worth the trip and the cafeteria in the park was a perfect end to a great afternoon.
