  • Visit the Pinacoteca means being in a globalized world when it comes to culture/arts. There everything is art: the construction, the paintings, the sculptures, the various exhibitions and everything you'd expect on a visit to a "Museum". Not to be missed! Worth the visit!

  • Variedade de obras originais interessantes, com algumas réplicas e trabalhos nada significativos. Tudo meio misturado. Na minha visita, um amigo foi atacado por alguém que parecia estar tendo um ataque psicótico e descobrimos que não havia segurança no lugar. Estudantes e empregados (não ligados à segurança) tiveram de conter a pessoa em crise. Ninguém se aproximou de nós para saber se precisávamos de algo. Um ato de violência física foi simplesmente ignorado. Suponho que outras coisas do tipo aconteçam lá dentro e, infelizmente, não há a presença de pessoas preparadas para garantir a segurança dos visitantes.
  • Very interesting and educational museum displaying a large variety of Brazilian art. It has some original ways of displaying the works and helpful guides on how to read art. More than worth its very reasonable R$6,00 entrance fee.
