Ignore most the negative reviews, they are from old people who don’t appreciate modern art. It’s a small museum but with plenty of interesting pieces. Free admission and cloakroom, the surrounding park is worth a visit too.

The museum has an impressive name. I was sort of expecting São Paulo's version of New York's MOMA. Very disappointed. The museum is a small one floor affair. The work on display the day I visited was poorly lit and uninteresting. Please check ahead prior...More

Placing an art exhibit in a park is a fun and clever idea, especially for a modern art display. Surely, this gives more people the chance to view and benefit. But the small size and limited art displayed defines this as individual exhibits rather than...More

Relatively small museum, the Signals exhibition of Mira Schendel was rather boring. The second part, the Eight Decades of Informal Abstraction, couldn't save the day.

I really liked the museum because it is very big and beautiful. You can see pictures and sculp´tures. And the cafe is very good.

Not a must see and disappointingly small. Current exhibition on 35 deg panorama was quite interesting but place does not take maximum advantage of the part setting. Staff also indifferent to customer care, including at the cafe.

MAM is a nice place to visit since its inside the Ibirapuera Park, where you can walk around, visit the museum and then have a nice lunch at the MAM restaurant.

Located in Ibirapuera Park, the Modern Art Museum will not transform your appreciation of art or overwhelm you with piece after piece and room after room of magnificence. What it will do is provide you with an enjoyable hour or two with beautiful art, including...More

The museum is quite small and the exhibited pieces are quite dull - but maybe it is just me figuring out that I'm not into modern art. The gift shop has quite a lot of cool items and the café/restaurant is very nice and affordable.

The building is interesting architecturally but the exhibitions so-so. I fear that this is a result of the lack of government support that arts & culture are experiencing in Brazil. The collection is primarily Brazilian modern & contemporary. But for 6R admission (less than $2...More
