Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanha)
A visit to the Museum of Tomorrow begins in the 360-degree, oval-shaped theater that screens a film about evolution and the beginnings of life. 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.
Things to know before you go
- Book your admission ticket online to skip the line at the ticket office.
- Plan to spend somewhere between 1-1.5 hours exploring the museum collection.
- The museum facilities are wheelchair accessible and include displays in braille, sign language, and multiple languages.
How to get there
The best way to get to the Museum of Tomorrow is to take the VLT light rail from Carioca Station in downtown Rio to the Port Zone, or take metro lines 1, 2, or 4 to Uruguaiana station, from which the museum is a 10-minute walk.
When to get there
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, and tickets are timed. Plan to visit on a weekday afternoon, when the museum tends to be least crowded.
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.
