The building has something. It works as a gallery space by being interesting enough, very functional and not dominating the art work. We saw the personal collection Sergio Carvalho, Contraponto, and it was excellent. The man has taste and understands art. Catch it while you...More

Just across the street from the Metropolitan cathedral, the museum is worth a visit once you are there. The architecture is very appealing. It seemed to me like the museum doesn’t have a permanent collection, therefore you will see whatever they have as their temporary...More

As an architect, I love the way this building fits in with the simple modernist features of the whole city. Having no big signs around, the building opens up like a puzzle. Unfortunately the circular inside could be better utilized and better lit somehow. But...More

It's free and most likely on your way already... but if not, simply don't bother. The building has a very nice, modern design from the outside, but really nothing to expect in it.. There is a very nice tarasse on the side of the building......More

They have utilized technology to create art. The human interaction was great. A must visit for every age group.

At the time I was in visiting Brasilia, the Museum was exposing a Photographic exposition. It was very interesting, but I recommend overall this place as a architectural visit. The insides are as interesting as the outside look of a planet or spaceship. Indeed entering...More
