The MASP has recently undergone some renovation to rearrange their exhibits in a more comprehensive way. While the top floor is dedicated to their permanent exhibits, the second floor features their temporary exhibits which caters to giving the visitors a taste of some local talent. Don't miss out on the antique fair that takes place on Sunday in the open area.

Absolutely amazing museum filled with a large variety of artwork collected from a diverse time range and artists. From modern pieces changing the definition of art to more classic pieces showcasing classical Brazilian techniques, this museum has a lot to offer visitors of any age or nationality. 4 levels and a very interesting open air design for the stairwells, the architecture is one of the most unique in the area. Low admission prices and friendly staff make for an absolutely impeccable experience.
An impressively great art museum. The main gallery is one huge room full of paintings and sculptures, laid out in chronological order that allows you to look at art through time in a way I’ve never seen anywhere else. Truly world class, but that’s actually to be expected in a world class city like São Paulo. On your way in, skip the elevator and take the stairs that allow you to look at the bottom of the hanging section of the building. Is it as flat as it looks from the ground? How do they hang that funny looking thing in the air like that? See for yourself!
Quite a nice art museum. Free to enter on certain days, check before planning your visit! The exhibits start on the second floor above an open, unenclosed space. The second floor contains rotating exhibits and the permanent exhibition is on the third floor. They have a nice mixture of old masters side by side with local artists in free standing pedestals you can get right up to, which is a nice feature compared with most art museums. The exhibit itself is a bit of a curatorial nightmare with no apparent organizing principle, but overall a excellent museum.
Loved the approach in the permanent art exhibition on the second floor: art works placed at eye level in glass which helps you get to the paintings up close and personal. Glass effect makes the works float in the air. A quick tour from medieval to contemporary art with some of the most known works by the masters.
Remarkable collection! Innovative focus and displays. Love the vision that guides the choices of collections and exhibits. Café and store are modest at best. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are FREE! WHAT? Where else can you see Degas, Picasso, Modigliani, Monet and other luminaries for FREE???!!!
