The museum has a nice view of Praca Maua on its top floor, for that it is worth to go. The exposed art is not art, a bunch of things, bad taste, out of everything, maybe 4 or 5 peaces are ok. If you are...More

If you are going to Rio, you should go to Museu do Amanhã. Besides all interesting expositions , the scenery is worth to be seen.

One of the worst museums I've been to. One floor about a historic woman whom I couldn't figure out why was so deserving of attention besides money, and one okay floor of contemporary art. The photography floor was closed. Freezing. Horrible.

The museum needs improvement to show Rio's contributions to the arts. It lacks a full representation of Rio's great artists, which can be better appreciated at other museums in Rio and Sao Paulo. Labels in English, French and Spanish would be helpful for international visitors....More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that
