Okay, I love Oscar Neimayer which is why I went. Not disappointed. Calm and peaceful area with a stunning pictorial history of Joao Pessoa. If you haven't been to Joao Pessoa, go. IT IS WONDERFUL.

The buildings are nice, and we have been coming here over the years with the ecpectations that the building will get more content. Unfortunatly it's the opposite. Now there is just half a floor with exhibitions left. There are some scientific objects for kids to...More

Just a special building. Another one of those from the architects of the 1960ties inspired by the 1960 "grandeur" of the communists.

We didn't have enough time to spend at this city. However, I could see that the city is full of historical and architectural places. Also beautiful beaches. Bad the day we were there was raining. I hope came back one day and explore in detail.

This place was projected by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, the same that did Building of the UNO, the Brasilia City, the MAC in Niteroi, Univ. Constantine in Argel, etc. In this complex works small expositions. It has free parking.

Here you can understand why Brazilians adore their best architect ever: Oscar Niemeyer. It looks as a spaceship, with different expositions inside, awesome views of the city and beaches, experiments going around by students and beautiful place.
