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 museum is located on the banks of the pond pampulha. The building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, world famous brazilian architect and, hosts some works and many mural projects from Paulo Werneck. Paulo Paulo Werneck was important for its colorful murals whose gave life and movement to the modernist constructions unison. It was also responsible for mosaic designs used in some famous buildings in Brazil. Unfortunately the information on his life and work is only in Portuguese. Visit applies to relax. It takes about 30 minutes to visit and read all the information available.

This little museum was not design as such, but to be a casino. The building was design back in the 40s when the whole Pampulha complex was design by the most famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, then at the beginning of his career. The area around the MAP (Museu de Arte da Pampulha) is very agreeable, close to the lake Pampulha, with some fauna to admire around the building, it has interesting sculptures in the garden and those were design for Burle Marx, one of the most acclaimed Brazilian landscape designers.

In my opinion it was nice to do something useful with the building, although even after a renovation in the 90s it is possible to recognise that it was not planned as an art museum. Even dough, it is worth a visit, because the museum has an interesting collection of Brazilian contemporary art. Most big names of Brazilian artists such as Di Cavalcanti, Guinnard, Ibere Camargo, Tomie Ohtake, Volpi and many others area there.

One of my favourites, besides Di Cavalcanti is Vik Muniz, which has in the museum paintings that he did using chocolate. Not only for that, I like his art. He is quite creative and re-invent himself constantly, producing new different style of art works. It was nice to see closely his work on chocolate.

Such a nice museum, such poor use of it. The space was designed by Niemeyer as part of Pampulha and it was originally intended to be a casino. Nowadays it is a modern art museum, but often times the place is completely empty. When you do find an exhibit going on, chances are it won't be any good. Very sad.

As part of the architectural Oscar Niemeyer work for the Pampulha Lagoon it's' a beautiful building. But it's always empty. It's a great place for pictures and for being at peace with nature.

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.

Located on the banks of the Pampulha Lagoon. This beautiful Niemeyer building has a small café, a small auditorium and hosts art exhibitions.

We made a special trip to visit the museum only to find that it was closed due to a private function. Not that there would have been much to see – there didn’t seem to be any art or exhibitions inside. It appears that exhibitions are held sporadically. We were still able to walk around the building and admire the architecture and the view of the lack – however it was not worth the effort of getting there.
