When my daughter came to visit us here in São Paulo from New York with her 3 chdidren, ages ranging from 8 to 4, we took them to see the MAM, and we were all very happily surprised by their reaction! They went through each artist's space comparing it with the following ones, and since it's not a big museum... More

The Modern Art Museum in Sao Paulo is a great place to spend a saturday or sunday afternoon. Take your time and enjoy all the pieces that the museum has to offer.

There was a nice street art exhibition when we was there. The place is small and so is the exhibition, so go if you are in Ibirapuera Park anyway.

Located around Ibirapuera Park has a good selection of Modern Art from both South America and Europe. It was a good days visit, not the most amazing Art Gallery I have visited but impressive all the same.

It did not take long to view the exhibits in this museum. We were disappointed after having visited the Pinacoteca and the MASP the previous two days. However, the sculpture gardens nearby were fun and the nearby Museu Afro Brasil is terrific. If you don't have much time, skip this museum and go right to the Museu Afro Brasil.

Maybe I'm just not a modern art guy, but I found that the whole experience was not worth the small admission fee. When I visited they had an exhibit with a bunch of artists interpreting a theme revolving around surveillance in our modern world. Every description placard felt like overly wordy BS trying to make a simple piece of art... More

first, you need a lot of imagination to see what’s part of the exhibition and what’s simply part of the building. Second, you need an awful lot of imagination to actually see the artistical value of most of the stuff. Third, when you comply to the above mentioned criteria, the actual display is very small. The only (very) good thing... More

Along with MASP and Pinacoteca, a must-go for art. It is located in the city's best park (Ibirapuera), and makes a good afternoon program.

Yes it's a small venue but it has some excellent pieces. Degas, Raphael, Bellini and more. For those looking for quantity and not quality, this isn't or you. I had a very enjoyable 90 minutes. Tuesday's are free. Otherwise about US$3 -a.cup of coffee. It's near the metro and some nice shopping.
