And the different exhibits were very interesting. It attracted all ages, from school children to adults. What an architect. I would love to see other buildings he designed. It was very nice that they had small prototypes of his other designs.

We loved every room in the Museum and the museum itself is a fantastic architecture piece of art! We found the Lavajato exposition quite interesting.

The whole building is awesome! The exhibits are very good and it is amazing to see how locals go there to do every sort of things; yoga, break-dance, dancing lessons, jog, take the dog for a walk... I loved that about it, it was so lively. The entrance fee is 6 reals, which I found cheap compared to museums in... More

I will admit we did not go into the museum, but we did walk around and enjoyed the architecture. This is a famous museum, and I hear that the architect has another in Rio. There were many things happening around the outside, but would have liked to go inside- just no time to see it all!!!

Fantastic place to visit in. If you go to Curitiba but if you don't get into the museu. You don't know what's about being in Curitiba. It's a nice place. A family place where you can enjoy lots of artists. They are all congrats about the job they have done. Tks to all artists, including Oscar niemeyer

Nicknamed as 'Museu do Olho' (or 'Museum Of The Eye') by the locals, because of the shape designed by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, this place has a very interesting permanent collection as well as great temporary expositions. Besides that it's located next to a beautiful park, so it makes a mandatory day visit when in Curitiba.

Really well organized, clean, with nice exhibitions (in March 2015 they were showing Sebastião Salgado). Worth the visit!
