“Total surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I guess it depends what art you like but from the building to the displays this was a total surprise and we really enjoyed our time. I would propose there is something for everyone. A good way to spend 1-2 hours and there is always a nice cafe there and you can enjoy the architecture if art is not your thing.

“Nice architecture.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Very beautiful architecture. Unfortunatly there aren't too many "really" important exibitions. It depends a lot of the time and period of year. The price is very good. There is a small store where you can purchase some books, a coffee shop and 2 or 3 pubs/restaurants around.

“The building itself is an Oscar Niemayer's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Although it looks like it has been modified from it's original plan, it is still very impressive.
The best part of it: one can step in the lawn, walk around the building and explore.
BUT, there is garbage everywhere!! And youngsters drinking and smoking pot in dalight.
I didn't feel safe at all!!
And the gardens around the museum were in very bad condition... It felt like the gardeners haven't shown up for ages! Everything green was just left to grow as it wished to...
Inside the museum, some interesting brazilian artists exibitions.
Most of the time, the air conditioning systm was SO noisy we could barely understand what others were saying.

“Absolutely a must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I usually don't like visiting museums but I must say that this place was the most amazing museum/gallery I've ever been to. We ended up here on a Sunday and were just in awe with the expositions/architecture/classical music quintet etc.

First Sunday of every month is free. R$4 every other day. Best thing going on in Curitiba.

“A must when visiting Curitiba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Amazing design by Oscar Niemeyer, museum nicknamed The Eye (shape of de building). Exhibitions interesting. To learn Oscar Niemeyer better you should watch the video documentary in the basement. Museum has a cafe-restaurant, serves great coffee and a good lunch. The museum is a must when visiting Curitiba.Take the Linho Tourismo for a bustour around town. The bus stops at the museum and the botanic garden, also worth considering.
