This is the biggest museum of Curitiba. 3 to 4 hours of nice art to be seen. It has an outstanding architecture, created by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer. Very well located, with a lot of trees around, and a big path to go in a sunny Sunday.

Museum designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer, is worth visiting, fantastic architecture, always with interesting exhibitions. Check the museum's website on the day / week of the visit, which has plenty of exhibits and activities, well worth the visit for sure! Wide green area in the back, near the Pope's Grove.

Understandably reviews of this museum often focus on its design. It is strange: a giant eye on a base surrounded by water and behind it, a flat, long, rectangular slab. I'm not sure what the architect, Oscar Niemeyer, was trying to do. Create a museum building that is itself a work of art about looking? Or was it a sly... More

Oscar Riberio de Almeida Niemeyer Soares Filho (wow!, known as Oscar Niemeyer...was a Brazilian architect considered to be one of the key figures in the development of modern architecture....giving modernism a little samba flair! His swirling forms and curving lines replaced European modernism's harshness with softness, as smoooth as Brazilian jazz. His work is sensuous, almost hedonistic. This museum houses... More

The museum has cool architecture, but if you do not arrive at the ticket office at 5:30 pm on the dot, you will not be able to buy tickets. If you get there at 5:32 PM, you will be out of luck. Look at the sign below in the photo.
