The place is fantastic, with an unique architecture and aggregating all the types of art. The library offers a very calm place to study. There is also a set of cultural attractions that goes on every day. So, it's a place for all the "tribes".

Very worthwhile and a good value for the price. I learned a lot. The exhibits were only in Portuguese but easy to figure out nonetheless.
