Museu Oscar Niemeyer - Review

Also called as Novo Museu or New Museum, this museum was inaugurated in 2002 and was later attributed to honour its famous architect Oscar Niemeyer who accomplished this project at 95 years of age. The structure is also referred as Museum do Olho or Museum of Eye due to its distinct design.

The museum primarily focuses on visual arts, architecture and design. Spread over two buildings, the museum spans over an area of 35,000 square meters, 19,000 of which is dedicated to exhibition space. The museum houses Niemeyer’s signature elements like bold geometrical shapes, carved volumes in different sculptures, large areas of white painted concrete and variety of murals and paintings.

Museu Oscar Niemeyer, Curitiba Reviews

  • I was really impressed by the architecture of the building. Oscar's work never cease to impress me. Also I enjoyed the Chinese and Indian art gallery section.

  • Interesting facade. Permanent expisitions may be a bit boring. On the weekends you will find lots of teenagers dancing around the museum. Also a good Gathering Place for dogs and their owners.

  • One of the best place to visit in Curitiba. Though I didn’t like the museum inside, I liked very much the architecture of this museum. It is in fact named after its architect. Various museum rooms exhibits many featuring cultural items however it is very very small in terms of count when I compare it with the largest single man collection museum in Asia named Salar Sung Museum in Hyderabad, India.

  • The must modern museum of Curitiba. You can visit the exibitions and also enjoy the out side parts, like the green field on the back, where people can sit and drink a beer with their dogs.

  • An incredible museum, like most of Niemeyer works and designs. This place is really worth to visit, the amazing architecture and the surroundings. There are exhibit rooms under the entrance floor, which is made of glass that lets you look through it. The art is not only in the works exhibited but also everywhere starting with the museum itself. Awesome!
