Although I don't speak Portuguese, I liked the setup of the art, including some (but not all) English explanations. The building itself is of course a work of art, but the museum also is home to an impressive and various collection. Tip: visit early as we experienced business in the afternoon.

Fascinating space from outside from every angle. If you love photography this is a great place for photographs. Inside, not so much going on as far as the collections are concerned.

If you like art and you are addicted to coffee, this is your place! You can also come during the weekends and see lots of people with their dogs on the Museum "backyard".

The museum tour will take 2-3 hours if you want to see all the attractions. There are many interesting exhibitions although don't expect world-famous names in this place. There is a very small part of the exhibition dedicated to Oscar Niemeyer, consisting mostly of mock-ups of some of his designs. Most of all, the architecture of The Eye is breath-taking... More

We are not really into museums - however this was a different thing. The building is worth just going to have a look even if you do not go into the museum! The museum is cheap and good to take up an hour or so - but the main reason we went was because i thought you could go inside... More

This is certainly a "all afternoon" program: this great museum presents you with different expositions all year long. But besides that, it's also a city mark: the building is a design by the great brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. Still, there is a very good café at its hall and a very nice park behind it, where you can have a... More

"The Eye " , MON Oscar niemeyer Museum is impressive how huge the building is and the way that was implemented. The interiour is faboulous , simple and complex because the view and proportions whose the construction is always provocating to the visitors to look outside in certain points of view. Good place to visit interior and exterior, take photos... More

This was the best attraction in Curitiba (except for the Australia Vs Netherlands football match!). The restaurant/cafe was good, the entrance price is low, the exhibitions were great. I liked the moving images, but others liked the head-dresses and feathers, others the artwork. After these we walked to the lower ground level, read up on Oscar Niemeyer, and then followed... More
