Considered an important research and documentation center since its opening in 1965, the MIS / Museum of Image and Sound will receive its new home in Copacabana.

The museum will offer a journey throughout the cultural history of Rio – a well-known and celebrated city for its Carnival, Samba and Bossa Nova. Besides being a cultural center, the museum will also function as a hub to produce and promote culture. Its 9.8 thousand square meters will offer the public an innovative exhibit design in order to digitally display the institution’s collection that includes different documents, photographs, billboards, records, footage, videos, newspapers clippings, and texts. MIS will also house and display the Carmem Miranda Museum collection.

The museum’s program includes short and long term exhibitions, research offices, educational activities room, a 280-seat theater/cinema, a shop, a cafeteria, a panoramic restaurant, a bar/rooftop terrace, a nightclub and an observation deck, as well as a kiosk on the beachfront.
