If you are around Pampulha (see Igreja de São Francisco da Pampulha), this is a must. The building is a project by Oscar Niemeyer and was a casino until 1949. It is now a Museum, but the assets is seldon shown. But is is worthwhile a visit.

The Pampulha -branch of a wine wine flowers- Modern Art Complex in Belo Horizonte, Brazil is an extraordinary example of how prolific architect Oscar Niemeyer was in capability of conceiving art and art works. The whole complex is an outdoor museum in itself, but its limits there the now 60 year old Museu de Arte, a precious piece of architecture with a great modern art collection. We spent a whole day being inebriated by art and Niemeyer!

At no fault of the people working at the Museum, it's fallen to hard times, what a shame, it would have been a lovely place in its hey day and still has so much to offer if it could be saved, lovely location and beautiful area.

exhibts are rare, and most of the time the museum is completely empty. the building itself is not pretty at all. getting there is super dificult too. there are better things to do on the lake, do don't bother.
