What is a visit with mediation, without mediation or with a workshop?

A mediated guided visit is based on a conversation about the Museum and its current exhibitions.

A mediator is the professional responsible for interacting with the group during the visit. This professional researches, studies and prepares the visit, always taking into account the group's prior knowledge and direct participation.o.

Without mediation

In a visit without mediation, the group is not accompanied by a professional during the entire visit, they only receive basic guidelines for the visit upon arrival.

The group must be guided by the teachers themselves and must follow the guidelines received by the museum staff and the booklet sent at the time of confirmation of the appointment..

With a workshop

Visits with workshops only happen when the schedule is available for mediation.

In this format, the group participates in a mediated visit, followed by a practical activity, with the aim of expanding the knowledge obtained during the visit. The workshop may be related to the curatorial concept, the artist or an artistic technique.

Is it necessary to pay for mediated visits and workshops?

The services offered by the Educational Program are free of charge! However, it is necessary to purchase the tickets to the museum.

Public educational institutions are exempt from the entrance fee to the Museum, as well as children under 12 years old and seniors over 60 years of age. Private educational institutions and tourism groups must pay the value of 30 reais (full price) or 15 reais (half-price).

On Wednesdays, admission is free for everyone, as it is the Museum's free day.

Groups WITHOUT mediation: The time is determined by the leader of the group. We suggest that you reserve at least 40 minutes for the visit.

Groups WITH mediation and WITHOUT a workshop: It is mandatory to have at least 1 hour for the visit. It is important to consider how many exhibitions you want your group to visit.

Groups WITH mediation and WITH a workshop: The workshops are directly related to the content covered during the mediation. Groups scheduled in this category must allow at least 2 hours for the visit.

Do public institutions and NGOs need to purchase tickets?

No. By prior appointment, even without mediation, public education institutions and NGOs are exempt from admission fees.

Do companions/monitors need to purchase a ticket?

No, they will be exempt. There is a maximum of one companion for every 10 students. Specific cases that require additional companions/monitors must be communicated in advance.

Is it mandatory to have an educational mediator accompany the visit?

No. If you prefer, you can make an independent visit with your group. We always seek to personally greet all groups, even the ones without mediation, in order to welcome and clearly inform the museum rules before the visit.

For groups with minors, it is mandatory that the group remains together, even without mediation; the group can be divided into smaller subgroups according to the availability of companions and monitors.

⚠️ It is essential to have one companion/monitor for every 10 students.

Is it possible to eat snacks or have lunch with the group at MON?

Please instruct the group to preserve the cleanliness of the place. Trash bins are located next to the main entrance and in front of the ticket office.

The closest parking lot to the entrance is on Rua Manoel Eufrásio (side street to the museum), the bus can only remain parked during boarding and disembarking, with a tolerance of up to 15 minutes. After this period it is necessary to park on the street.

Are groups allowed to engage in pedagogical activities during the visit?

Yes, this is allowed, but we suggest doing any activities before or after the visit, so that the group can enjoy the museum experience in the best possible way.

For groups with mediation, we ask that this be communicated in advance for the adequate preparation of our team.
