It' s a really nice place to take a coffee, or to visit in a lazy day. Although the neighborhood is not as cool as the place, the "Pinacoteca" is a real cultural sanctuary in SP.

Free entrance on Saturday, closed to Luz metro station (Centro). Its valuable to spent 2 or 3 hours to visit this museum. Interesting works for contemporaneous art. Best Regards, Antoine.

The place itself it's beautiful, the best exhibitions make it perfect. You can enjoy a great coffee the end of your tour and around it there's a gorgeous garden filled with sculputures. The only thing they are missing is selling tkts online, but otherwise is a must go!

We were lucky enough to go visit Pinacoteca for the first time and see an exhibition by hyperrealist Australian artist Ron Mueck's.

Aside of the expositions, the building is also a piece of art that deserves a delicate observation. And of course, having extra art shown there junt improves the experience. A must see in Sao Paulo.
