Destino Brasil – Niterói Contemporary Art Museum
A highly recognizable fixture of Rio de Janeiro’s infamous cityscape, the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum (Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói — MAC) is an imposing structure of modern architecture. Designed and engineered by Oscar Niemeyer and Bruno Contarini, the saucer-like building boasts a wondrous panoramic view, as well as art exhibitions and an outdoor reflecting pool. From the viewing gallery, landmarks such as Guanabara Bay and Sugarloaf Mountain can be seen, making this a true cultural point of interest for any vacationer in Brasil.
