Owner description: Elevated over a concrete platform used for concerts and a weekly crafts fair, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (São Paulo Art Museum, abbreviated MASP) is itself a work of art; the building is an imposing Modernist box suspended under two bright red concrete supports. Featuring classical European names such as Gauguin, Goya and Gainsborough, the museum also holds one of the largest collections of Brazilian and other Latin American artists on the continent.

In the most famous avenue of the city,the Paulista Avenue, you can find this iconic museum,the MASP, by subway the best way to arrive is stopping on the station of Masp-Trianon.

Had a bit of time inbetween meetings and decided to pop into the Museum of Art. It didn't start well with the ticket guy lying about not having change to give me. The museum itself is a bit weird. In a modern building but on the whole filled with traditional art works, including some from the major masters. The building itself feels like it's about to fall down. On the plus side all the commentary is in both portuguese and english. The gift shop was a disappointment mainly in that they didn't have anything directly related to the works they had on display, some of which I would have liked to learn more about. Considering there is little in terms of sites to see in Sao Paulo if you have a free hour it's worth popping in for, but if you're used to art museums in places like London, New York, Chicago, Paris, etc, you won't be impressed.

MASP, or Sao Paulo Museum of Art, is a beautiful place to visit. Its located at Paulista Avenue, a very beautiful and corwded avenue in Sao Paulo; The architecture is amazing, idealized by Assis Chateaubriand, and it has about 8,000 pieces. Some very famous, like Van Gogh and Monet, some very modern! Great place!

Located in the heart of the financial district, the museum is a modern free standing structure with great and very important works of art. The entrance was around 8 USD at the time and you wont need to be there for more than 2 hours, as its not that big. It is also a great place to stop by when it's too hot and you feel like spending some time enjoying the air conditioned space without locking yourself down at the hotel!
