We had a great experience with our guide Meilin who explained the concepts of the museum and so we enjoyed the imaginative way the universe was presented to us and took away from the museum some memories of the amazing photographs. The art graffiti commissioned on the Olympic Boulevard was superb to see and well worth the visit. A different twist on Rio and a pleasure to experience.
