Museu Oscar Niemeyer reviews
One of these places you have to pass by and have a look ! Oscar Niemeyer’s work is appreciated by many and hated by a few, make you own mind visiting and walking around! more »
I loved visiting this museum. I spent three hours exploring and I could’ve easily spent way longer. The exhibits were creative and beautifully curated. I loved it! The museum is on the city tour bus..... more »
Excellent place to go, with various types of artifacts and even a dedicated section for the Japanese royal family. Choose a date when there is a good exhibition on the Eye tower, or you'll just find a bunch of contemporary "art". All the other features are flawless, nonetheless: great pieces, environment, atmosphere, etc.
I went on a Wednesday and got in for free. I liked that this art museum had something for everyone. Some areas I found more interesting than others.
