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.

Just looking at it from the outside made us want to go inside, but we did not have time to do it! We must go back to Brasília to visit it again! If you are in the capital make sure to visit it!

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