This little art sanctuary in a modernist house in the hills of Santa Teresa sits in lush gardens designed by landscape architect Burle Marx. The museum showcases a small collection of paintings, sculptures, and engravings from Brazilian artists, such as Candido Portinari, and European masters like Matisse and Modigliani, collected by the arts patron Raymundo de Castro Maya. The elegant house, interior design, gardens, and panoramic view of the city and the Bay of Guanabara make the trip to the museum even more worthwhile. The admission price is insanely low to ensure that the art is accessible to the Brazilian public.
