Niemeyer's beautiful architecture designed with mastery for the site,(a seaside elevation), provides from within the museum and through huge windows throughout its circumference, a 360th view of Guanabara Bay and much of the waterfront of Niterói. On the day of our visit, it gave me the impression that the museum itself, did not have a considerable permanent collection, and only what had available were some traveling artists exposing. Maybe the museum's curatorship is too weak.
One of the places in Rio with spectacular building structure and a good view. There is also a wonderful experience of contemporary art and a show of colours mixed with the sound of the waves as they break on the rocks below from the view in the windows of the museum. It's wonderful. However, I believe it lacks more expository art
The building of the museum is great and definitely worth seeing. The exhibition when we visited however was "too minimalist" to put it extremely kindly. There was basically nothing.
