Amazing place to go while in the city! There's an exterior garden on the last floor, beautiful, inside a coffee and restaurant shop. There are wonderful exhibitions almost every month and even classes for general public, if scheduled (artistically driven). Also, on Thursday's you can go to life drawing classes for free, at 2pm

This is one of the greatest Brazilian poets. It worths learning more about this work and life. The coffee in the museum is great too.

Beautiful organized art-space. A lot of small expositions, library, sound library, garden, theater, some dancing clases (which was interesting just to see as well).

It is a very small place but is fun and it's five minutes from the art museum, so it ends up being a quite nice and relaxing visit

Love the architecture of this building. Not too many entertainment options. But a lovely place to explore. I love the rooftop garden.

This is the place! Beautiful, recently restored, and with a lovely rooftop cafe on the top floor. Lots of art, a nice little boutique, and a violin player on one of the walkways when we were there! Certainly worth checking out, and adding to your Centro exploring.

Just interesting .. A former luxury hotel repurposed for an arts center. Beyond the architecture which is very interesting, also has some art studios and artistic training workshops. Worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood

We didn't have time to explore the inside of the building, but the outside was beautiful. There was some sort of small Carnival like parade going on that day and we decided to watch people gather from across the street. There are also many restaurants nearby.

Nice place to get back in time and experience the old Majestic hotel where used to live the famous poet Mario Quintana. It is worth going all the way up to enjoy the view from the cafe.
