Museu Internacional De Arte Naïf do Brasil (International Museum of Naïve Art from Brazil) Review

More than 6,000 art naïf works by Brazil's best self-taught painters, along with some by their counterparts from around the world, grace the walls of a colonial mansion that was once the studio of painter Eliseu Visconti. The museum, near the station for the train to Corcovado, grew out of a collection started decades ago by a jewelry designer. The works on display date from the 15th century to the present. Don't miss the colorful, colossal 7×4–meter (22×13–foot) canvas that depicts the city of Rio; it reportedly took five years to complete.

    Museu de Arte Naif do Brasil Review

    We tried to visit this museum in Sept 09. We arrived & the gates were locked. We called from outside the gates to learn that they are now only open by reservation and the entrance fee has increased to 20 Reals. It was our last day in Rio, so we never did make it there.
