Art Gallery of the State of Sao Paulo (Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo) Tours

Art Gallery of the State of Sao Paulo (Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo)
Founded in 1905, the Art Gallery of the State of Sao Paulo (Pinacoteca do Estado) is one of Brazil’s most important art museums. Dedicated to 19th and 20th century Brazilian art, the Pinacoteca collection features more than 8,000 pieces, including works by Almeida Júnior, Pedro Alexandrino, and Oscar Pereira da Silva.

The Basics
As well as Brazilian art, the museum features canvases by European artists who were inspired by Brazil, and archives full of documents relating to art history. Many Sao Paulo sightseeing tours stop at the gallery, particularly museum and art-focused tours that tend to cover Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), Museu De Arte Sacra De São Paulo, and Casa das Rosas. Choose a private art tour to customize the museums you visit. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Art Gallery of the State of Sao Paulo is a must-see for art lovers.
  • Audio guides are available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
  • Admission is free for children under 10 and seniors over 60.
  • The gallery is accessible to travelers with wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get There
The gallery is across the street from the Luz subway station, making it easy to reach by public transport; take Line 1 or Line 7 to reach the museum. Paid parking and a bike rack are also available.

When to Get There
