I recommend Niterói Contemporary Art Museum in Niteroi, MAR, Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro, Centro Cultural Banco do BrasilCaixa CulturalMuseum of Tomorrow e o National History Museum. These are my favorites and you can visit all them at once. You can also go to Museu Nacional de Belas ArtesNational Museum of BrazilCatete PalaceInstituto Moreira Salles. Another nice place is  Parque das Ruinas

You'll find a million museums here to visit, hope you enjoy!

there ir a new museums called Museum of Tomorrow "museu do amanhã" translating museum of tomorrow..

Mosteiro de São Bento, monastery of St. benedict, is also a very good place to start your trip. there you will have access to other musems, like the old house of the president, back when Rio was Brasils capital..

if you need to eat, there is also a very nice place, very historic, called confectionery Colombo, confeitaria Colombo.

Niterói Contemporary Art Museum is very good. It's not exactly in Rio de Janeiro, but across the bay in Niteroi.

But you can easily get there with one of the ferries crossing the bay.


You also have MIS - Museu da Imagem e do Som  and National Museum of Brazil and Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro
