“Porto Alegre's Guggenheim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Fundação Iberê Camargo is a must in Porto Alegre, South of Brazil. Projected by the Portuguese star-architect Alvaro Siza, the museum is extremely beautiful. I went there many times, and it is always different. Besides the Iberê's collection, seasonal exhibits make the museum alive and vibrant. The best views you can have in the city are by the museum windows. Arrange the ending of your visit by the time the sun disappears on the Guaíba River waters, having a glass of wine or champagne at the cafeteria close to the atrium.

“Beautiful space!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

This building is by the Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza and reminded me a lot of his wonderful Museu Serralves in his home town of Porto in Portugal. Don't miss seeing this marvellous building and peeking out of every single window to see what little surprise he has in store for you. Oh yes, and the art exhibition was great, too.

“Architecture called my attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

It's a nice museum, not big, in a nice place outside the center of the city, by a river. But the thing that impressed me most is the architecture of the place, different of what you'll find in the rest of the city

“An excellent work by architect Álvaro Siza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Visited on June 9th, 2012. I was impressed with the quality of Siza's work, which is very classy yet simple. As another user has said, Siza's architecture makes it worth going there and that was my case, as only the 4th floor was opened on that day as they were still putting an exposition up for the remaining floors. I was initially disappointed with it, but the building and the café next to the main structure made me enjoy the trip to this part of the city. Iberê Camargo's work is quite interesting - I confess I didn't know much about him before visiting the museum. His dark, sad, paitings and very interesting critics of society (as per the letters written by him, which are exposed on the 4th floor) were very nice.
