The place was planned by the world class architect Oscar Niemeyer. It is home of great works of art as a permanent venue, but it also receives other great art shows that move around the world, From the moment you drive there and park the car at the border of the lake and walk in, eveything is beautiful. Check the calendar for times and availability.

This building of this museum is in itself fantastic...I visited on a sunny day and the light play inside and out was exciting....the lake surrounding and the view is quite amazing...I was disappointed by the collections however which were minimal....

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.

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.

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.
