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!

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 .

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.

Spectacular building, excellent displays of models of other Niemeyer buildings, and then on the top floor there are individual exhibitions. Bit biased because I love Niemeyer but it's an awesome building.

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
