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

  • Um belíssimo museu construído por Oscar Niemeyer em Curitiba. A arquiteta em si já é um presente para a cidade. Dentro muitas galeriascom muitas exposições diferentes. Tudo muito amplo e bem distribuído. O valor do ingresso para acesso ao acervo é R$20,00 por pessoa com alguns critérios para meia entrada e gratuidade. Vá com calma para passar um bom tempo dentro do museu. Garantia de diversão e de muitas fotos lindas. Super recomendado!

  • An excellent and striking modern art museum. The building itself is a masterpiece of post-modern architecture (primarily the famous "Niemeyer's Eye") The collections on display were varied and interesting, from modern British abstract, to a fascinating collection of ancient works from East Asia. The interior of the Eye itself is a little bit of a let down, as it feels like an underutilized space, however that could simply be the pieces currently on display there.

  • Nice Museum with free pass on Wednesdays. It has a great Cafe but it's closed on Mondays.

  • O MON, sozinho, já vale a pena uma visita a Curitiba. O museu é inacreditável. Uma obra prima da arquitetura de Oscar Niemeyer, tem grandes salões, corredores e jardins, além do olho em si, que também pode ser acessado. O museu sedia diversos eventos culturais e sempre tem novas exposições. Quando faz sol e céu limpo, é um lugar que definitivamente vale a pena.

  • There is an amazing place where you can enjoy the sunset and some drinks coffees ice cream beer music theater expositions etc.
