  • I really enjoyed this museum! It is more or a traditional art museum as opposed to Museum of Art of São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand. I may personally like traditional art museums better, but I thought the Pinacoteca was a better experience. I enjoyed the layout and restoration of the building as well as the numerous balconies. The art on display was very good at showcasing Brazilian art of several eras. I highly recommend this museum.
  • Beautiful building with a surprising collection of Brazilian and European art. Both from the 19th century and modern art. Not always logically arranged, but that doesn't matter much. Wonderful atmosphere inside the building
