Oscar Niemeyer Museum (Museu Oscar Niemeyer)
One of Curitiba’s most recognizable landmarks is the Oscar Niemeyer Museum (Museu Oscar Niemeyer), built by and for the famous architect. It highlights his modern designs that are prominent in many of his buildings around Brazil. The museum’s rotating exhibits showcase both national and international artists from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Basics
The museum is built in the shape of an eye and is perched on a large yellow pillar with playful dancing figures in black, positioning itself as the main attraction of the museum. Inside, myriad artists are represented as is Niemeyer himself in an exhibit that’s a museum highlight.   

You can visit the museum independently or with a city tour, most of which stop here and discuss the life of the famous Brazilian architect. To round out your cultural experience in Curitiba, book a sightseeing tour with dinner to see the city’s top attractions—such as the Wire Opera House (Ópera de Arame), Botanical Garden of Curitiba (Jardim Botânico de Curitiba), and Tangua Park (Parque Tanguá)—and sample some of Brazil’s delicious cuisine.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Oscar Niemeyer Museum is a must for modern art and architecture lovers.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available for visitors throughout the museum and the cafe.
  • Food and liquids are not allowed inside the museum.
  • The museum and its restrooms are fully accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The Oscar Niemeyer Museum is located in the Civic Center of Curitiba. If you’re driving, there is paid parking on the premises. Alternatively many city buses—including the tourist bus, Linha Turismo, and the 505 from Passeio Público— stop right at the museum.

When to Get There
The museum is open from 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Sunday. It’s one of the city’s most popular attractions so it is best to get there early to avoid large crowds. Admission is free every Wednesday, and on the first Wednesday of each month the museum is open until 8pm. The best time to visit Curitiba is during the spring (September to December) and fall (March to June), when the weather is pleasant and there is less rain.

The Legacy of a Great Architect
Oscar Niemeyer is one of Brazil’s most renowned and beloved architects. He designed many buildings throughout the country, most notably in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro. The 183,000-square-foot (17,000-square-meter) space, also known as the Museum of the Eye, was designed by him and was completed when he was 95 years old.
