Nice museum in city centre, amazing old, historical classical building in a great green square, close to Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana....but I would prefer to spend my time in Ibere Camargo or Ling Institute and in a sunny days in a green area (the city offers a lot of spaces) or walking around Bomfim.

The Santander Cultural houses many great exhibitions and is a gem of a building itself. Definitely worth the visit. The shop is also a great place.

The Santander Cultural is worth going. there you can find a coffee shop inside a safe cause the place used to be a bank. Its arquitecture is beautiful , as soon as you come into it look up and you see a glamorous view. it´s a place with very nice shows and it´s open to the community.

We saw a really neat art show here, some choro music, and a guitar + bass concert. There's always something, it's always affordable, and the building is gorgeous. The columns alone are worth coming in for! (giant Corinthian columns.) Oh, and the cafe in the old bank vault is very nice as well.

A good price to appreciate a French neoclassic architecture. Also you can enjoy the art expositions and movies that they are current hosting.

Food is good, souvenir shop too, always nice things to see. Check what is available. Downtown may present difficulty in parking. Recommend take public transport and learning about the surroundings before going there.
