If you want a museum like the smithsonian, that can wear out a pair of shoes in a day - this isn't for you. However if you want something quick and sharp for an afternoon then you may love this as much as a I did. It has some big names to pique your interest (warhol, picasso) as well as other excellent pieces which lay people (such as myself) may not appreciate. I find it had a good spread of different styles.

I was fortunate enough to see the Salvador Dali exhibit. It was very very good. There were probably around 180 pieces of his there, and they were fascinating. Again a good mix of styles and techniques to keep everyone happy.

Awesome! 5 minute walk from the metro too, love it.

The museum has a nice Salvatore Dali exhibit currently and it made for a nice visit. They also had an interesting collection of artists from a German couple's collection on 2nd floor. The quality of your visit will depend on what is being exhibited at the time of your visit. In Centro and walking distance from Uruguaiana metro stop. Close to a few other sights as well.

Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil is the best Cultural Center in town. At the moment, they are having a wonderful exhibition on Salvador Dali, as main atraction, & on top: free of charge...............but they have plenty of other activities: 3 theaters, 1 small cinema, a good bookshop, a nice bistrot/cafe. Very often, also for free, they have music at lunch time or good conferences, generally on the exibition in course. To enter those activities, you have to arrive one hour earlier, to get in line in order to receive your ticket (senha, in Portuguese). Check their programme for the month at:

Went to see the free Dali exhibit that was on here in June but left underwhelmed. Not the fault of the institution but felt that the content was poor.
