Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum (MAC) Tours

Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum (MAC)
The swirling modern architecture of the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum (MAC) looms over Boa Viagem Beach and Guanabara Bay. Inside you can find paintings, sculptures, and installations from Brazil and around the world—plus panoramic windows with views of the city skyline, Guanabara Bay, and Sugar Loaf Mountain. 

The Basics
Set on the border of Rio de Janiero, the city of Niteroi is a popular day trip destination. Most full-day Niteroi tours leave from Rio and include a stop at the Contemporary Art Museum along with other city highlights. Boat tours from Rio on Guanabara Bay offer views of the museum's exterior as well as other Niteroi shoreline sights. For a personalized experience, opt for a private city tour with museum admission included. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tickets to the MAC are half-price for students, teachers, and seniors. 
  • The museum is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. 
  • The MAC hosts a restaurant with top-notch Brazilian food and even better views. 

How to Get There
The museum is located in the Boa Viagem neighborhood of Niteroi. The closest bus stop serving the museum from downtown is located on Rua Presidente Pedreira; it's a short walk to Mirante de Boa Viagem from there. Parking is available on-site. 

When to Get There
Visit on Friday or Saturday night to catch local music acts, or on the first Sunday of the month to experience the museum’s Cultural Exchange Fair. On Wednesdays, admission is free. 

Niemeyer and Niteroi
The city of Niteroi is home to a concentration of buildings designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer, including the Teatro Popular de Niteroi, the MAC, and the Caminho Niemeyer: a collection of Niemeyer-designed structures along the shore. This smaller, quieter city with easy access from Rio is a must-see for architecture buffs.
Address: Mirante da Boa Viagem, s/nº - Boa Viagem, Niterói, RJ, Brazil 24210-390, Brazil
Admission: Varies
