Great exhibition and great art. Layout and presentation is perfect. The variety in the pieces is very cool and setting up the exhibition "La Casa" according to themes and not according to time, artist or country works well. Only downside is that there is no...More

I only walked through one floor of exhibits, but the top floor of the museum has an outdoor patio where you can get one of the best views of Sao Paulo! It's free to enter, so no reason not to visit. Plus, it's right next...More

Not everyone in São Paulo knows about the fantastic "Museu de Arte Contemporânea", simply known as "MAC". It has quite recently moved to a fantastic (and totally renovated) building projected by Brazilian iconic architect Oscar Niemeyer, overlooking "Parque do Ibirapuera" and its green lawns. There,...More

Well, I had the hotel call to find out what time last entry was for the museum and to get assurance they were indeed open -- after spending 1.5 hours in traffic in a cab trying to get to the nuclear-bomb-hit University Campus (weekends there...More

This lovely gallery seems to be in the most inaccessible place! Right in the centre of the university campus, even the bus drivers (let alone the locals) don't seem to know it's there. But when you find it, its so worth the trek. It has...More

This museum is not massive, but it's growing with new arrivals from the artist Alfredo Volpi (1896-1988) and many others. There is no fee to get in and the besides the art, the building is very pretty! After visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art, you...More

The new MAC-USP is still quite empty, but they have nice pieces of art, including sculptures and paintings. You should not miss Di Cavalcanti's exhibit on the 7th floor and go to the terrace on the 8th floor. From there you'll have a 360º view...More

We spent about R$60 to and from the location on the City University. There were NO masters of modern art as mentioned in the review from 2005(!). I'm assuming all the good stuff is at the location in Ibirapuera Park. But we'll never know. Please...More

I appreciated this somewhat off the beaten path museum located at the verdant Ciudade University(Reachable by buses near the Clinicas Metro Station). At the this art museum,I saw excellent paintings by Picasso,Leger,Kandinsky,Modigliani,Diego Rivera,Emilio Di Cavalcanti,Tarsila Do Amaral,and Candido Portinari.
