Tips from locals
European & Brazilian art in the former residence of a Rio businessman, with gardens & city views.
The museum has a very peaceful garden to relax and enjoy the view. The garden is connected to another touristic spot, parque das ruínas.
It's a good excuse to get to know Santa Teresa, reknowned bohemian neighborhood perched on the hillside above the Center of Rio. The collection is interesting, in a former collector's home, with pleasant grounds and surroundings.
Great local museum housed in a Brazilian modernist mansion set in spectacular grounds in Santa Teresa, and holding an excellent art collection including many historical paintings of Rio de Janeiro. Next-door is the Parque das Ruinas museum.

“If you do go to Santa Teresa one day, have lunch at Bar do mineiro and order a Feijoada. Do not eat the crazy meat that comes inside , or order a plain version. But the beans and bean sauce are fabulous. This is a very typical place in Santa teresa and a great visit.”
