I had a morning free so went here to have a look around. It was also "Social sunday" (first sunday of each month) which meant the entrance was free. It's a visually impressive building - some very long concrete cantilevers with a number of exhibitions rooms. Overall the place feels quite empty, but it's good as you can walk around very relaxed. The art inside varied from quite bizarre to relative mainstream modern art. I enjoyed it - you can do the whole place easily within 2 hours unless you are a very serious arty person.

Only minor disappointments were a) no viewing area from inside the "eye" (at least I couldn't find it) and b) the shop was very limited - I would have bought some prints/interesting bits of art if available for sale. Really it was just books, t shirts and mugs for sale.

I don't normally enjoy museums but I found this one to be great and enjoyable.

It has many different rooms full of artists that specialist in works of art that are visual illusions. Good for photos and entertaining.

It takes up a lot of space but much of it is empty, you could do it all in an hour if you rush.

Again, the entrance fee was inexpensive, only $6R.

Beware it is not open on Mondays!

Enjoy the unique structure that will welcome you as soon as you get to the Museum block. Stop to take pictures of it and try to get a good view to capture the whole "big eye" in just one shot.

A good museum to see some contemporary exhibitions, is mainly dedicated to the local artists. The building itself is interesting, designed by Oscar Niemyer, with the main room being a eye-shaped building.
