Overview

This museum with 360 degree views of the city and the Guanabara Bay is worth visiting just for the location alone. The present structure was created in 1954 by famed architect Wladimir Alves de Souza and the art contained inside is primarily European, but with works from some famous names like Modigliani, Matisse, Miró and the pointillist Seurat. Aside from the Europeans, the museum also has plenty of works from local Brazilians, both famous and not-so famous. This is another museum that falls under the patronage of the organization Castro Maya, named after the philanthropist and empresario extraordinaire, Raymundo Ottoni de Castro Maya.
