Rio Museu de Arte Moderna

Recommended
At Rio's Museum of Modern Art you will find works by Picasso, Brancusi and Rodin alongside pieces by Jorge Barrão, Florian Reiss, Ernesto Neto and Felipe Barbosa. The collection is so impressive you could easily forget the tragic fire that beset the building in 1978, 20 years after it opened. Thanks to exceptional efforts to build up the museum's collection again, the exhibited works provide a magnificent overview of contemporary sculpture and painting, both national and international. The wonderful location of the museum in the middle of the Burle Marx-designed Flamengo Park enhances the visit.
