  • One of the best museums in the city, with varied programming and fixed collection. Ease of access, adequate monitoring, restaurant support in case of intense hunger (RS) and a lot of culture

  • The Pinacoteca has a beautiful collection and the building itself is a great attraction. Everything very well organized, clean. Polite staff. Although today (Saturday) was free and so had a queue, everything flowed very fast and without any kind of disorder. It is an unforgettable tour in São Paulo.

  • 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 🙏
