Throughout the main hall, exhibits cover modern-day environmental disasters and visual displays that depict ozone damage, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy consumption. Choose between a basic admission ticket or a package that includes a tour of the museum and round-trip transportation, or a visit to the nearby Rio Art Museum.

Rio de Janeiro’s Port Zone

The Museum of Tomorrow is the flagship landmark of a massive revitalization effort in the city’s Port Zone, known locally as Little Africa. What used to be a decaying industrial zone is now a newly-renovated cultural area that features museums, restaurants, plazas, and stunning views of the bay and the Rio-Niteroi Bridge. Other port attractions include the Rio Art Museum (MAR), AquaRio Aquarium, Banco do Brasil Cultural Center (CCBB), and the Orla Conde boardwalk.
