For what Brasilia has to offer, they have done really injustice to Niemeyer's architecture by putting really poor quality stuff in a national museum

Does not look like much from the outside, with free entry I pleasantly surprised with the variety of art work that was inside. Take your time walking around there are many different and interesting things to see. Have your camera ready.

Vale a visita pelo edifício, rendendo belas fotos no exterior. Mostras itinerantes, sem muita expressividade. Visita de meia hora. Nice to see the building, you can take beautiful pictures outside. Exhibitions without much expressiveness. Visit of half an hour.

5 star for its look alone. The gallery itself wasn't great when we went, with an unexceptional ground floor but better political art upstairs.

A marvellous gallery with fantastic exhibition space. The day of my visit I was able to view three very different exhibitions including a massive collection of Oswaldo Guayasamin's work and two photography exhibitions. the enormous space around this building as with many in the city enhances its prominence.

No idea how long it is shut for. Worth seeing from outside if touring the city as another interesting building in this spacey city.
