Iberê Camargo was a great Brazilian artist and this museum offers a fairly good look into his work.

The staff here were really friendly and informative. They guided us throughout our visit.
They recommended we started our visit from the top floor and work our way down via the ramps.

There was some cool art pieces, but after realising how prolific Iberê Camargo had been in life, I just wish there were more of his large paintings being exhibited here.
There was lots of drawings, but painting-wise, I felt there wasn’t enough.

There were some interactive parts of the museum which would be great for kids and the museum also offers cinema showings which are also free. They do welcome donations of course.

It’s still definitely a must-see in Porto Alegre. It can be done in a couple of hours in the afternoon and you can watch the sunset right outside afterwards.

The building is a project of Portuguese Architect Alvaro Siza. Very interesting architecture with rare views from Porto Alegre and the Guaíba River.
It’s dedicated to Ibere Camargo and his works but also helds exhibitions and cultural meetings.

Well, the building and it's location are interesting at least. After many trips to Porto Alegre, I was excited on a recent one to be able to, at least, visit this museum dedicated to the artist Iberê Camargo. The space is not particularly big but the building itself is interesting. I did find it odd that a couple of the windows affording a view of the Guaíba were covered up with cardboard with no explanation offered. But after walking about the entire museum, we were struck by the lack of actual works by the eponymous artist. In fact, I couldn't find any on that day (in June 2018). When we asked the staff at the front information desk, they said that the works had been removed but couldn't explain why and when they would be put back. With that, they shrugged their shoulders. Indifference is a hallmark of many staff in tourist spots in Porto Alegre, this latest instance being yet another example. Disappointed, we went next door to the café to enjoy some overpriced and undersized snacks. I can't recommend going. Lovely architecture, though.

Iberê Museum is a great place to visit. It's right by Guaíba River and besides seeing lots of paintings and art works, you can find good coffee at Press Café watching one of the most beautiful sunsets. The visitation is free, but it's a good idea to make a reservation and be certain that the museum is open.

This art foundation of Ibere's work plus other exhibits was funded by local big businesses.
Now they are feeling the financial pressures of the corruption and recession they have mostly withdrawn funding

So Presse cafe has gone because the gallery has closed most days- open weekend afternoons only now(August 2017)

So sad!!! A building I adore....& fascinating art

The Fundacao Ibere Camargo is located quite a bit outside of Centro (and other parts of downtown). Luckily you can catch a cheap trip there with Uber, otherwise we wouldn't have made it to such a unique modern art museum, especially for Brazil.

The bad: The Fundacao Ibere Camargo museum is only open Fridays and Saturdays. From what I understand, that is due to budget cuts. This also lead to a large part of the museum being closed down for "renovations." The exhibit was limited to most of the 2nd floor, so there wasn't a huge collection on display (at least when we visited in mid April).

The good: There is free admission for the two days a week they are open. The building itself is wonderful, with all these indiscriminate angles and curves. The design was incredibly unique - you only see that with a few world class modern art museums like the Dali Museum in St Petersburg or the Guggenheim in Bilbao. And the small part of the collection that is on display is wonderful. I love the vivid colors he uses during his expressionist phase. The sketches are interesting too, it's like a window into Camargo's thought process.

In any case, you've got nothing to lose by checking out the Fundacao Ibere Camargo. It's free, the building is impressive, and they might have more Camargo's work on display by the time you arrive.

Awful design. Rarely presents a remarkable art collection. Some may say it makes up with a great view of Guaíba River, but seriously, you can get a good view from a lot of other places;
