  • It's a unique architecture but it does not offer a lot. It is a museum but it does not have many art exhibitions to see. It definitely has a beautiful view of Rio but not something I will recommend or go back again. It is also pretty far from downtown area or Copacabana.
  • As a museum is one of the worst I ever visit. But as a place to take photos is awesome. You also have a guy right outside the museum selling coconut that worth every cent.
