The MAC is a thriving art and cultural center across the Bay of Guanabara in Niterói. World renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer designed the modernist UFO-like architectural beauty of a building. Perhaps the most stunning work at the MAC is the panoramic view of the Sugarloaf and the city's skyline from the glass paneled gallery—make sure your camera batteries are charged! In addition to the frequently changing modern art exhibitions, the MAC offers weekly storytelling and poetry reading events and monthly cinema meetings. The Museum Bistro, located in the basement, also has fabulous views of the bay.
