  • An ode to ugliness and dysfunctional architecture. It's not nice, it's not dashing, it's an aberration spoiling the view. Someone once said: If I found out who gave the first pencil to Oscar...

  • One of these places you have to pass by and have a look ! Oscar Niemeyer’s work is appreciated by many and hated by a few, make you own mind visiting and walking around!

  • Very interesting and unique architecture. The museum at the the time I visited had a mixture of modern art and art from Africa, Asia, and native Brazil. Its worth a look around the place even if modern art is not your style like me.
  • This museam has an exhibition of the famous Brazilian twins world renowned for thei graffiti work. The exhibition is well set out and detailed. I love art so I loved this place. More over the architecture of the museam is wonderful. It is truly fascinating from an architectural and engineering perspective.
