By car

The access to  Ibirapuera Park is through  Gate#3. In order to park inside, it is necessary a parking card called Zona Azul. It is the same Zona Azul card that can be used in the city, but with extended time inside the park. The one-hour card is valid for 2 hours; 2 cards of 1 hour correspond to 4 hours. You can get to the Museum taking the Marquise, a beautiful monument designed by Oscar Niemeyer, a Brazilian famous architect. It is a pleasant  half a mile walk.


By public transportation or walking

If you are staying around the neighborhood and would like to walk a little, you should go to Gate#10 (located in front of the Legislative Assembly). Padre Manoel da Nóbrega Pavilion is the first building you can see from there. It is Afro Brasil Museum. If you are coming by bus, get off at Pedro Alvares Cabral Ave next to the Legislative Assembly and go to Gate#10.
