The museum is beautiful and located in a very nice urban park (Joao Paulo II, worth a visit). There is a small permanent exhibition about Oscar Niemeyer and the program of the rest of the museum rooms is constantly with interesting stuff alternating brazilian and foreigner artists.

A striking building that houses a fairly mediocre art collection; the sculpture garden was under repair and therefore inaccessible. If you are a great fan of Mr. Niemeyer's extravagant designs this is worth a visit; if you are not, skip it.

A lovely designed construction by Oscar Niemeyer, but with exhibitions of varying quality. About half the museum was closed, presumably for preparation of new exhibits, on my visit.

We went to this Museum and expected to learn a lot about Oscar Niemeyer and his works. That resulted in a bit of a disappointment, because only a very limited area of the Museum is used for Oscar Niemeyer. Maybe for Brazilians who alreday know a lot about him this is an advantage. But it was not for us.

My favourite exhibit was one of photography. It was incredibly grotesque, the photos were creative, interesting, skilled and shocking. the furniture was also super cool. a very eclectic museum.

... and also for going alone! really, lots of stuff, exhibits change pretty often. There's a lovely green area at the back for picnics. Also, they often have fares/events on the weekends. Recommend!

The artistic creativity of Oscar Niemeyer has to be seen to be believed. With a few seemingly ample pencil strokes he created drawings that became monumental works of art. This museum is an example of that. You will walk beneath unimaginably long concrete beams, and go up and down ramps to see the museum, with the piece de resistance being... More

O olho how we call the ON Museum is just a eye catchy surreal sculptural building. Anybody is emotional touched by the cheer unexpected dimension. I mean which major iconic city in the world has a structure of that scale? It's fun in and outside and the large platform serves for many enjoyable event during the year. And when the... More

The MON, or "eye museum" in local speak, after the inconic eye-shaped building that stands prominently afront the complex, warrants a visit even if you have just a day in the city. The expansive building with great sweeping white walls lends both tranquility for the visitor and dignity to the installations. And big names come: O'Keeffe and Escher are two... More
