There is a very nice view of Mauá square, unfortunately it is only open during the day, from 8am to 18pm. You can also enjoy the restaurant there, that has a very good food.

The Museu de Arte do Rio, MAR , in Portuguese means 'sea', is a museum that intends to dialogue with Rio's cauldron, from its exuberant landscape, a intent to generate and produce avant-garde art manifestations, and its home grown traditions. It has 7 floors and there's is a rooftop with open views to the Bay and the Museu do Amanhã, nearby. The best option if you want to visit both is to buy the "ingresso único" that allows you to access both museums in a 7 days period. It costs R$32,00 which gives a considerable discount. My advise to you is, DON'T waist your time trying to buy the ticket online. Go directly to MAR and buy there, and you'll avoid a huge queue to get in to Museu do Amanhã. You'll thank me for that! It's a pity that the exhibition, "O Rio do samba: resistência e reinvenção, is ending this month after a whole year opened to commemorate Mar's fifth anniversary. Its all thumbs up to the curators and the ambiance created to portray a history that still very much on. A long fight to resist against racism and segregation through ART. Art that becomes a political statement as if poor people, explored and manipulated couldn't even in their ghetto or spare time be happy, sing and dance. There's many facts in political life in Rio and Brazil related to the money laundering form illegal lottery, Nonetheless, when you go through the films, photos and objects collated in the 3 floor show, you'll notice how much effort was made by a huge collective of people to create and support Samba Schools and how many of the best lyricists and ,Brazilian musicians were born or drank form that spring to create some memorable internationally recognized songs. This exhibition should be put PERMANENTLY! Brazilians and foreigners must know this story and make their own conclusion to what is going on in Brazil right now with funk

Amazing place. The exhibition on the history of samba combined paintings, costumes, musical instruments, photography, videos, news clippings spanning several centuries. Truly world-class work.

Really, really awesome exhibits representative of the country & era & art scene. Wish we could have spent more time. Also went on a free entrance day!

One of the best museums in Rio, always presenting more than one exposition. The building is extremely beautiful, there's a rooftop with a amazing sight of the Guanabara bay area. On Tuesdays the entrance is free, but it's very crowded as well. If you go on any other day of the week (except Monday that is closed) you can buy tickets for visiting MAR and Museu do Amanhã with a huge discount.

Besides their itinerant exhibits on Rio life and culture, it offers the public what the city is best known for: a breathtaking view to the sea, at the foot of Rio's legendary Morro da Conceição. It's onward look to the city feats the remoduled boulevard, cutting edge museum of Tomorrow and an exquisite cuisine.

Nice local Museum full of local history, from the Indians that originally lived there to some take on Brazilian modern artists. If you have the time, you can have lunch on top of the museum with some great views to the Museu do Amanhã.

One of the newest museums in the city, M.A.R. is definitely an option in Rio. The architectural solution to join the two buildings created a real masterpiece. Arts school and museum, nice café and shop on the ground floor.

A museum that merits a visit. The landscape view at the roof level is amazing. I liked particularly the integration between modern and old architecture.
