On my last trip to Rio de Janeiro, I finally managed to visit the city on the other side, called Niteroi. Why? I wanted to visit the famous Contemporary Art Museum.

Leaving Rio with a ferry…

And arriving in Niteroi.

After arriving in Niteroi, I took a bus to the museum. And here it is.

The building is fantastic. Smaller than I expected, much smaller but an impressive place. I wish I could live there.

It was build by Oscar Niemeyer, the famous architect that also designed the capital Brasilia.

Some artworks inside the museum:

The building is worth the trip. I was not very impressed by the artworks. View from outside of the museum towards Rio.
