  • It should be school discipline of 1st and 2nd degrees (or fundamental and medium) visit to our museums. With proof, notes and repetition. There are the lives of hundreds or thousands of people who have been portrayed or depicted. There are places, cities and landscapes. Works that have come out of an artist's ability to externalize his feelings. Pinacoteca has works of the most diverse and all very beautiful. So schedule at least 2 visits to see and review your rooms with exhibitions and return a few months later to remember and feel what that work will be telling you when reviewing it.

  • Well maintained. Nice pieces of Brazilian Art and International Artists. There is a place for kids interact with art through activities. There is a beautiful and clean restroom and a good café with vegan food. Easy access. The Subway station (Luz) is right in front of the entrance. Excellent price ticket.
  • The pinacoteca was beautiful. We visited all the major musuems during our stay, and this one was hands down our favorite. The exhibits varied and offered something for everyone. Lots of natural light and beautiful brick walls allowed you to sit and take breaks in peace 🙏
