The National Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro was established in 1937 and remains as one of the most important institutions for Brazilian art and sculpture to this day. The museum only enriched its collection early in the 19th century after which the collection has grown to be the largest collection of indigenous art forms in the world.

There are a lot of great pictures, I really enjoy it, I recommend to visit if you are around there .
The contrast between historic masterpieces and contemporary pieces of Impressionism always astound me and this museum provides a fine Brazilian playback of this transition, of course with the added bonus of a hallway of Greek and Roman marbles. The building is luxurious in itself and you can spend hours being lost in the grand halls
Interesting collection of imperial and contemporary art. Cost R8 to get in. Well worth it. Contains the largest painting ever commissioned in Brazil. Make sure you ask for a headset guide. It wasn’t offered to me, so I didn’t even know it was an option until too late.
Practical wisdom is only to be learned in the school of experience.
Nice museum with many different rooms where can you can find different modern art and classic Brazilian art from 19th and early 20th. If you are in the area, I strongly recommend to pay a visit !
