The museum is now free - which was a pleasant surprise. The museum is in the former Arts Academy and is a beautiful, classic building right on Rio Branco - in front of the Theatre.
The collection has a chronological angle, portraying national art through the Brazilian history - easy toplace in political an social contexts.
I find the staff attentive and helpful - although no english - and I have passed by the museum with a few groups on out city tours.
