About
Here at MAI - Museu de Arte Indigena, are gathered numerous original pieces of art made by Brazilian natives, including pieces made of feathers, pottery, weaves, musical instruments, ritualistic masks and utility objects. This collection is the result of over a decade of work of our director and founder, Julianna Podolan Martins, an indigenous art specialist, that collected art and knowledge from several ethnicities that live all over Brazil. This museum is formed by a private collection that originally was exhibited in Clevelandia, Parana in 2009. Since then, it has been known around the world for its diversity and beauty. And now the museum is located in Curitiba, Parana.

Beautiful artefacts, well displayed with perfect lighting. I really appreciated the explanations of the objects in English as well as Portuguese.
I was surprised at the large number of indigenous tribes in Brazil.
Also loved the very tempting gift shop, especially the rare types of native-bee honey.
Can definitely recommend.

I had the pleasure of visiting MAI with my kids 13 and 11 years old, it was an amazing and unexpected experience for them and for me.
My kids speak Portuguese but there was a lot of things that they couldn’t understand, luckily our guide had a good English knowledge and translated some of the information accurately when needed.
I was so amazed by all the information that we’ve learned, the exhibits are well displayed and conveniently placed in a well maintained and beautifully decorated space, we have also had the opportunity to taste Indigenous honey (from Native Brazilian bees) and salt.
This is a highly recommended experience.
Thank you MAI for a lovely afternoon.
