WHAT I THINK: I enjoyed my trip to this museum (which is more of an art gallery than a museum)! It is situated in Varjota, a cute, bohemian area with a smattering of coffee houses and restaurants. There were 3 floors of photography, with featured photography by Brazilian photographers. There were also pieces that included film and special lighting. They had a small library, cafe, and T-shirts being sold on the first floor. I would consider it worth one’s while, even if they don’t particularly like photography! Staff was very polite and helpful. It’s also a good opportunity to check out the Varjota neighborhood. Coffee shops are open in the daytime and restaurants tend to open after 7pm.
IS IT WORTH IT? YES!
