Museum of Tomorrow

Have fun with interactive exhibits that reveal the way the world is transforming and how climate change and social disintegration can be avoided.

Visit the Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanhã), a combined art gallery and science museum set inside a futuristic waterfront building. This innovative cultural center strives to explore, stimulate and visualize the prospects and probabilities for the future of the world in which we live. The Museum of Tomorrow is supported by some of the world’s leading organizations, including the United Nations. It covers present-day issues such as ecological deterioration, global warming and social rebellion.

The museum’s main exhibit takes you through five areas via dozens of interactive investigations. Begin your journey in the Cosmo zone, where a 360-degree movie condenses billions of years of Earth’s evolution into a high-speed presentation. Continue to the Earth zone to find three 23-foot-tall (7-meter) cubes illuminated by images that represent the flux of matter, connectedness of nature and human behavioral patterns.

Be astounded by the multimedia imagery projected onto the six digital totem poles in the Anthropocene zone. These poles feature scenes from real-life events, such as forest fires and melting glaciers, and show how humankind has contributed to Earth’s dramatic changes.

In the Tomorrows area, hands-on games present the chance to experience hypothetical ideas of how we will live and coexist in the future. See the main exhibit culminating in the Us zone, which is a replica of an indigenous house where tribal leaders pass on wisdom to their community.

Contemplate your newfound knowledge with a walk around the museum’s waterfront pathway and courtyard. Sit on a bench and gaze out over the glistening water of Guanabara Bay. Look back to appreciate the avant-garde design of the museum’s building.

Located in the Port Zone of Río de Janeiro, the museum is accessible by bus, streetcar and the metro. The nearest metro station, Uruguaiana, is a 15-minute walk away. There is no car park at the museum, so use public transportation to get here.

The Museum of Tomorrow is open from Tuesday to Sunday and has an admission fee, except on Tuesdays when entry is free. Find more information about the permanent and temporary exhibitions on the museum’s official website.
