“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

The museum and its collection are small. Drop in if you are already in Ibirapuera Park, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it. Normally, there is an entrance fee, but it was free when I visited. The Museum of Contemporary Art, which is next door, is better.

“Just make sure it is open”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

A fine museum but if you trek to Parque Ibirapuera on the wrong day either this or the Japanese gardens or something is apt to be closed. And it's a long, hot walk to the buses or anywhere much to eat and drink.

“GOOD!”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

It is everything you expect in a modern art museum. However, it's refreshing to see local artists' thoughts. And we love it that it's in a gorgeous park.
