This flying saucer building was designed by Oscar Niemeyer, with the assistance of structural engineer Bruno Contarini. It is 16 meters high and the cupola has a diameter of 50 meters. It is set on a cliff, with offering views of Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro, and Sugarloaf Mountain. Completed in 1996, the modernist structure is one of the city’s main landmarks.

A wide access slope leads to a Hall of Expositions, with a capacity for sixty people. The Niterói Art Museum presents a selection of the best Brazilian contemporary art, focusing on sculpture, textiles and painting. The collections are frequently changing.
