A 15-minute ferry ride across Guanabara Bay from Praca Quinze in Downtown Rio brings you to the neighborhood of Niteroi. A further 5 minute taxi ride then delivers you to the entrance of one of Brazil's most iconic buildings, Oscar Niemeyer's Contemporary Art Museum. Though critics say that the building is usually more impressive than the art within, MAC hosts a huge variety of exhibitions of international artists, talks by noted speakers, and cinema specials that should interest art lovers. If, however, the current displays do not interest you, the restaurant/cafe in the building is an excellent and relatively inexpensive place for a bite to eat. The round building offers a panorama of the bay you will not find anywhere else.
