Very beautiful architecture. Unfortunatly there aren't too many "really" important exibitions. It depends a lot of the time and period of year. The price is very good. There is a small store where you can purchase some books, a coffee shop and 2 or 3 pubs/restaurants around.

Although it looks like it has been modified from it's original plan, it is still very impressive.
The best part of it: one can step in the lawn, walk around the building and explore.
BUT, there is garbage everywhere!! And youngsters drinking and smoking pot in dalight.
I didn't feel safe at all!!
And the gardens around the museum were in very bad condition... It felt like the gardeners haven't shown up for ages! Everything green was just left to grow as it wished to...
Inside the museum, some interesting brazilian artists exibitions.
Most of the time, the air conditioning systm was SO noisy we could barely understand what others were saying.

I usually don't like visiting museums but I must say that this place was the most amazing museum/gallery I've ever been to. We ended up here on a Sunday and were just in awe with the expositions/architecture/classical music quintet etc.

First Sunday of every month is free. R$4 every other day. Best thing going on in Curitiba.

Amazing design by Oscar Niemeyer, museum nicknamed The Eye (shape of de building). Exhibitions interesting. To learn Oscar Niemeyer better you should watch the video documentary in the basement. Museum has a cafe-restaurant, serves great coffee and a good lunch. The museum is a must when visiting Curitiba.Take the Linho Tourismo for a bustour around town. The bus stops at the museum and the botanic garden, also worth considering.

Like all other constuctions built from Oscar Niemeyer, the best known brazilian architect, it is a worth seeing building. Because the admission fee is very low you should go inside. Even you are not interested in art, the visitation will be worthwhile for you. I cannot predict what kind of art you will be awaited from, because there are frequently new exhibitions. The most exiting feature of the museum ist he tower where the „eye“ is resting. You will find it going through a tunnel of light. After having visited the museum you should not miss to go to the „pope forest“, which you arrive only a few meters away.
