The MARGS is a small museum, although it is the most impostant in the city. The collection is not permanently on show, which is a pity. The temporary exhibits are usually of good quality. The building is not adequated for a museum, but the location is pretty good, in the middle of the Alfandega Square, centrally located..

It is probably one of the biggest and more complete museum at the south of Brazil. It does have art work from many of the greatest artist from this part of the country, including Karen Lambrecht and others. Also the building is very beautiful and relatively well maintained for the last few years.

Such a great museum! Cozy and beautiful. It's worth a visit even because it's close to Santander Cultural, another great spot to visit in Porto Alegre.
