Beautiful and inspiring

I saw the Genesis exhibition by Salgado, absolutely stunning and very very touching. The rest was also very interesting but this for me was the very best.

This museum is the shape of an eye. It has long halls and exhibits . I've been here twice ; its hit and miss with what's on display if it will spark an interest. Some big party's get thrown here ! Last saw a cool photography display there .

I really enjoyed the museum, it's very well organized and you get plenty of details. Don't miss it while visiting Curitiba.

Visited the Oscar Niemeyer museum and had the pleasure of seeing the works of Jaime Lerner, the famous Architect turned politician of Parana. Also saw the IDEA Brasil pavillion and walked around the EYE, a beautiful iconic tower. Another must for visitors to Curitiba.

Along with Niemeyer's spaceship-like museum in Niteroi, this is one of my favorite museums, architecturally speaking. The quality of the exhibitions varies a lot. The better exhibitions draw long lines but you'll never be disappointed, especially given the low admission charge. Within the permanent collection check out the basement housing models and brief write-ups of other famous Niemeyer buildings. The... More

This is a great museum to visit as it has an eclectic mix of exhibits not just art... there was a mix of architecture, photography (the Salgado Genesis exhibition was exceptional... possibly the best photography exhibition I have ever seen), modern art, local stuff and a little old school art too. We had to hurry a little so i think... More

Wish I had gotten to stay longer - we got there just before they were closing. Beautiful photography exhibits, and lots of other unique stuff as well. Interesting building itself too.
