  • Loved the approach in the permanent art exhibition on the second floor: art works placed at eye level in glass which helps you get to the paintings up close and personal. Glass effect makes the works float in the air. A quick tour from medieval to contemporary art with some of the most known works by the masters.
  • O prédio por sí já vale a visita, muito bonito e posicionado em uma das avenidas mais importantes do país, a Av. Paulista. As exposições são de ótima qualidade, valendo o preço do ingresso. Existe uma pequena cantina dentro do prédio. Cuidado com as pessoas do lado de fora, próximas à bilheteria que tentam vender livros xerocados (muitos não são os autores dos livros que vendem, embora dizem ser) ou aferindo a pressão arterial, elas só querem tirar seu dinheiro. Para se ter uma ideia, elas têm até máquina de cartão para te pegar caso diga: "não tenho dinheiro, só cartão".
