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

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

We wanted especially to see this awesome building (from the outside) but eventually we went inside and had the surprise of our trip, since the main exhibition was the work of a local sculptor named J. Turin. We had never even heard of him and were quite impressed.

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.

A really nice museum, with interesting collections and a splendid architecture. I think it is really worth the visit, as much as it is a really cheap museum.

I liked everything there, so if visiting Curitiba drop by the Botanic Garden, you can be sure you will love that place.

AKA Museu do Olho - Museum of the eye - for its massive eye like building in the front. The art inside is amazing and they always have some good exhibition going on. Been to Frida Kahlo an Escher - now they're having one on Jaime Lerner that if you like architecture is right up your alley (unfortunately I'll miss... More
