The museum is quite small and the exhibited pieces are quite dull - but maybe it is just me figuring out that I'm not into modern art. The gift shop has quite a lot of cool items and the café/restaurant is very nice and affordable.

Museum is in the Ibirapuera Park, lovely "central park" of Sao Paulo. There were several special exhibits at the time we visited, but we liked best the display of some ancient preColumbian artifacts in conjunction with modern pieces. That exhibit synthesis was thought provoking.

Nice and interesting exhibition. Worth seeing, when you are in the park. Take a jacket with you. Due to the a/c it is cold inside the building.
