Grade A!!! Get ready to go with time to see all the exhibitions. Or separate a second day of visitation. One of CWB's best sights. Top score! Spare a more than a couple of hours if u plan on visiting all the exhibitions on a syngle day. One of the Best Touristic Attractions in the City.

Really nice museum! I enjoyed most the Niemeyer Space where you can read and learn a little bit about this fantastic architect.

It's a really nice place, the Africa exhibition was one of my favorites, as well as the Asia one. Every Wednesday the entrance is free, however, some exhibitions have to be scheduled beforehand and are paid. On the building itself, it's an architectonic masterpiece.

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.

Just for this museum it is worthy the visit to Curitiba. Just incredible!


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.

A beautiful architectural space for artists to exhibit.

A great indoor space for a miles-long stroll on a bad weather day. Exhibitions (that try hard to be interesting) take place mostly in the undescriptive, adjacent "square" annex, so what is actually worth seeing is 85% outside. Store offers an array of objects using the museum logo (=outline). Still by far tourist attraction #1 in town.

If you're visiting Curitiba, you have to come to this museum. Mostly modern art is present here, but they occasionally have special exhibits of antiquities. Many parts of the museum have descriptions in both English and Portuguese, so no worries if your Portuguese isn't strong. 20 reais to enter for general admission and they have discounted rates for children and students, plus expedited service for geriatrics and people with disabilities.

Excellent place to go, with various types of artifacts and even a dedicated section for the Japanese royal family. Choose a date when there is a good exhibition on the Eye tower, or you'll just find a bunch of contemporary "art". All the other features are flawless, nonetheless: great pieces, environment, atmosphere, etc.

You should visit this museum if you are in curitiba, its eye structure is very famous. Inside you can explore many of the works of Oscar Niemeyer. Outside there are gardens where people take their dogs for a walk, recommended visit, there is a tourist bus that stops here.

It always has some interesting expositions and it's not expensive. On weekends you can go to the museum's garden to relax and read a book. If you're a dog lover you should go on Sunday mornings when it's common that a lot of owners brings their dogs to play around

A beautiful construction, touristic place worthy of a visit, with nice contemporary art expositions, and a park just beside it, you can easily spend a few hours there! The entrance is a bit pricey, but it's definitely worth it

Very modern and spacious place, with a great garden by the side which became well known as "ParCão" (park for dogs). Lots of good pubs and restaurants around it. Very secure and nice place for travelers and locals.

Lucca Teixeira 3 years ago

Big and modern museum, with around ten art expositions that change over time, it was a very enjoyable experience. There's a coffee place outside as well. Parking is paid.

The building itself makes it worth going. The exhibitions at the time I was there were really great - paintings, sculpture, light installations. Family, friends or by yourself it's a nice thing to do.

One of the most remarkable places of Curitiba. Build by the famous architect Oscar Niemeyer and inaugurated at 2002 it has an unique design, has with some frequency nice expositions. There is a huge space behind where you can enjoy a sunny day to make some sport, play with you dog or just enjoy to rest. It is safe around and it is located near another good places as "Bosque João Paulo II".

An incredible museum, like most of Niemeyer works and designs. This place is really worth to visit, the amazing architecture and the surroundings. There are exhibit rooms under the entrance floor, which is made of glass that lets you look through it. The art is not only in the works exhibited but also everywhere starting with the museum itself. Awesome!

One of the signature places of Curitiba if you are a tourist is a must do. The art display changes so there is always something new to see. O museo do olho is totally a must

Quite a nice place to visit if you're sightseeing. We went on a Sunday afternoon and entrance was free. The surroundings of the museum are also quite good. On that day e were surprised by the fact that at the garden of the museum a lot of citizens were roaming with their pets

The must modern museum of Curitiba. You can visit the exibitions and also enjoy the out side parts, like the green field on the back, where people can sit and drink a beer with their dogs.

Absolutely impressive. The permanent exhibition itself is surely more than enough to impress any visitor. Well worth a visit. Make sure you go in the morning. In the afternoon it becomes ridiculously crowded. Also, take the opportunity to visit Bosque do Papa, which is right next to the museum.

Marvelous resource here in Curitiba. Seems they make miracles happen all the time even though we know their resources are low just like everyone else's. So much activity and creativity in such a beautiful setting. It is a must!

To visit this, you need to access the tunnel if the other museum first. Great expositions with deep meaning. Sit back and reflect, every sensation helps fruition.

Leticia Dáquer 5 years ago

The museum itself is very strange, like everything Niemeyer ever designed, but it's worth the visit. There's always at least one interesting exhibition, probably more than one. The workshops for children are great. The green area around it receives dozens of people with dogs on warm Sundays and is even nicer than the museum itself then. The café and the store are nice too, though expensive.

Lucas Smit 6 years ago

One of the best attractions (and a great surprise) in Curitiba. Nice architecture and great spaces. The only issue is that when I visited more than half of the spaces were empty, so I wish they can get more attractions and exhibitions to make the visit even better!
