If you visit the museum MASP on a Sunday, you can also visit the outdoors antique market right under the museum.
On the other side of the street you'll fins a handcraft market, food, beverages and ice creams for sale. It's a tasty and cheaper alternativ than going to a restaurant and it was definitely a tradition to me when I lived there, to visit those markets and eat outdoors on Sundays if I was in town.
By the handcraft market, there is a park named Parque Siqueira Campos which is a beautiful, small regn forest area (right in the midle of this comercial area which is amazing). Really worth visiting!
Known as MASP, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo contains the most impressive collection of European art in South America. Works by Rafaello, Botticelli, Goya, Monet and Van Gogh, to name a few, are on display. The modern building housing the museum, with its four red pillars supporting the body of the structure, is considered a city landmark. It was completed in 1968 and designed by the architect, Lina Bo Bardi. The open space underneath the museum hosts an antique fair on Sundays.
Masp is one of our finest art galleries in São Paulo. The building is very modern and the excibitions are aways breath taking. I've already seen Monet, Van Gogh and Picasso at Masp, as they always bring the best of the exibitions from the whole world. You just have to check their schedule.
Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) located on Avenida Paulista in Sao Paulo does not appear to be a museum from the outside. It is a plain, squarish building, with not many distinct markings indicating that it is museum. It is above and below ground once you enter, with a variety of expositions and regular special events being held. There will be some very famous pieces as well as lesser known Latin American artists.
Brazilians allways say that they have the biggest Jesus Crhist of South America, the biggest avenue of South America, the biggest... everything of South America.
They also have the uglyest building of South America, the Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo (MASP).
From Tuesday to Sunday. 11:00-18:00.
Prices: - 15R$.
- 7R$ for students.
- Free for childs under 10 and older than 60.
Centrally located in a modern building on Avenida Paulista, the Museo de Arte de Sao Paulo has a good exhibition of European paintings dating from the Renaissance up to Cubism. There is a strong focus on painters that are from France or have worked in France such as Renoir, Matisse, Van Gogh, Modigliani, or Gaugin.
MASP - Museu de Arte de São Paulo -Contains a huge collection of works from the the Rennaissance to Modern Contemporary - paintings are displayed differently than in most classical museums: they are hung from the ceiling and arranged in rows; viewer walks through an 'avenue' of masterpieces displayed on either side. (Definitely worth a visit 2-3 hours.)
The MASP (Sao Paulo Museum of Art) has a very good collection of european art. I would say it is quite difficult to find such a big collection of expensive paintings in South America. So if you are Latin American (like me) it is worth your while! The MASP is located in Av. Paulista. You will find Velazquez, Goya, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Degas, etc.
The museum restaurant is quite good too.
...you find the modern building of MASP (Museum of Arts of Sao Paulo). You will notice anyway.
During the entire year there is some exhibition there, so you will not lose time... do not miss it.
Curiously I lived in Sao Paulo for three years and I only visit this museum during one of my weekend trips to visit friends.
First of all it's located in the most famous avenue in Latin America, Avenida Paulista. There you can see wonderful shows of architecture. The MASP building is a masterpiece. It was idealized by the wonderful Architect Lina Bo Bardi. Second of all, it holds anumber of art pieces that you should definately get to know. And don't you dare walk home without a poster or thousands of postcards!
