Only for art lovers

The structure of the building is fascinating but the art itself that is inside its weird to me because i just don't understand it. If you're not into art it can be boring

I don't know if it was the day I went or the collections, but the museum is pretty on the outside and dull on the inside...

The Oscar Niemeyer Museum is a place that you need to visit in Curitiba. There are a lot of galleries and artwork to see. Some very weird. The visit will take one to two hours and the parking lot is free.

Unfortunately, when I went there, The Eye didn`t have any exposition. Have a good collection and all the arts that was confiscated by Car-Wash operation is exposed there!

Interesting place, worth seeing from outside (architecture!) and inside (collections). Another thing-when the weather is good, you can have a rest there (cafe, outside space etc)

The building itself is worth to visit! The exhibitions are ok some showing local artists some showing reknown international pieces. The patio of the statues is nice. I enjoyed the space. There is no much interactive exhibits, but there was a workshop for school kids when I was there. There is a coffee shop and a boutique too.

Wasn't expecting that much beauty in a single place, walkable distance from de Center of the city and its clear that is one of the most beautiful places to visit. Classic art and modern collate by architecture photography, paintings sculptures and street art. Its a must and a solid 10 in my book

It is can be one of the greatest museums in Brazil. A lot o room for a casual visit. You can find a parking lot spot easily and behind the museum, there is a green reserve for a picnic. There is a marquise with a great coffee shop and store for shoppers. Easy access by public transport.

Great option if you're into art. Take your time visiting the museum and the spend some time outside sitting on the grass people-watching.

Thank Patrícia O
