The Museum mingles past, present and future of Rio de Janeiro. It tells the history in a transversal way, mixing its conflicts, contradictions, challenges and expectations.
This approach is clear as soon as you enter the site, where there are two buildings: one is the Palace Dom João VI, a heritage listed building where the exhibition hall is; and the other is a modern building where the Escola do Olhar develops educational programs for public education. Both buildings are interconnected by a pedestrian bridge linking the old with the new both symbolically and physically.
The Museum is on Mauá Square, recently revitalized and transformed into one of the most visited tourist attractions in the Rio. Right in front of the Museum, is the Museum of Tomorrow.
Enjoy the view of Guanabara Bay and Niterói.
