There isn't a whole lot going on in the museum space, so you can dispense with paying the fee to get into it. However, behind the building, there's a lovely area to see the Amazon from, and a mango tree for the ages.

The building, a former militar hospital is interesting in itself. At the moment there are few exobitions and I enjoyed seeing the importance of food in Para's culture. The exibition is quite small and could be done much better.

The restaurant was close and there was only an exposition (visual arts). They could make a better use of this historic site.

This site combines an art exhibit area and a bar-restaurant. The restored building is quite nice and is in good condition. We visited the site, but as that particular art exhibit did not interest us and we just had lunch, there was little to do...More

The building and surroundings are very beautiful, it is a nice place to stand just admiring the view, but apart from that is noting really special about the place.

Place is beautiful, nice night view to the river, including view to an old navy vessel. The cultural center does have some interesting attractions, but people actually go there for the place and the views from it. Restaurant is pricey, but good.
