Estado Art Gallery

500,000 visitors every year!

At the end of the 19th century the first stone of Estado Art Gallery was laid down, designed by architect Ramos de Azevedo with the idea that it would serve to support the School of Arts and Crafts. Like other museums, it suffered depredations over time from wars and general wear and tear. But in 2000 it was completely renovated in a project by architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, who won the International Mies van der Rohe Prize for this extraordinary reform of great architectural work that will leave you speechless. The Estado Art Gallery has become an international benchmark for its collection of Brazilian art which dates back to the 19th century up to the present day, and includes engravings, paintings, sculptures, photography and audiovisual materials. It receives more than 500,000 visitors each year, so if you are one of them do not forget to pay a visit to its Library, Documentation Centre and souvenir shop.
