A couple of weeks later than my last post, I share with you a photo of the new building of Museu da Imagem e do Som (MIS) , Image and Sound Museum of Rio, on Avenida Atlântica, at Copacabana beach.
The new MIS building is still under construction and is supposed to be ready by June, 2016, but you can already see a little bit of its architecture and imagine how it is going to be when it is ready.
This new Image and Sound Museum is meant to be a contemporary museum and culture center hosting exhibitions to provide the visitors “a journey throughout the cultural history of Rio”.
The Museum is currently working in its old building in Lapa neighborhood, but that aren’t many events going on there. The Museum’s staff is focused in the preparation of the Museum’s collection for the new Copacabana building. So if you are in Rio right now, unfortunately you won’t be able to see the Museum’s collection for yourself, but if you got interested and curious about this Museum, check its website and Facebook page.
But if you are planning to come for the Olympic Games, maybe you should consider on your planning a quick visit to this Museum!!
