...I certainly enjoyed this museum anyway. Can't say anything specific about the exhibitions though. I'm not that sophisticated ;) Although looking at previous pictures posted here I might have missed a floor or two... I think my picture says a lot about going to art museums.

Very small museum, in the park. On Sunday it's free, so if you're in the park you can have a quick look, but certainly not worth a detour.

Great two story museum located in the heart of Sao Paulo. I was impressed with the display of Post-impressionist works by masters such as Gauguin, Picasso, and Van Gogh to name a few. I happened to visit on Tuesday which is NO CHARGE for entry. Free WiFi inside and photographs without flash are allowed!

The museum is small and the art is so different i couldnt understand any of that. I guess modern art is not my style. The restaurant is expensive and the snacks are small. I think it's better to visit the museum of contemporary art that is nearby.

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Ibirapuera Park, the highlight of this neighborhood, is a family-friendly area to have a picnic, relax, play sports, exercise or appreciate art. It gets crowded during the weekends and is a popular leisure destination for residents. Its 1,584 square kilometers holds three lakes, two museums and several other cultural spaces. The park hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as free music concerts and a water and light show celebrating the holidays at the end of the year. There are two important monuments to visit, the Obelisk and the Flag Monument. Ibirapuera is a perfect escape!
