Agora é a hora de conhecer a Casa Museu Eva Klabin, onde estão muitas obras selecionadas pela colecionadora ao longo de anos, em viagens feitas pelos mais diversos países. Uma verdadeira relíquia! 😍

Assim como Ema e seu museu, Eva Klabin morou nesse espaço durante 30 anos. A sua casa foi uma das primeiras na Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas e hoje guarda obras que vão desde o Egito Antigo até o Impressionismo. A ideia de abrir a Fundação ao público veio da própria Eva e foi colocada em prática em 1995. Ela queria deixar seu legado para a cidade do Rio de Janeiro, oferecendo uma atividade cultural de qualidade. Aí na foto, você pode ver o Bodoir, um pequeno escritório ligado ao quarto de dormir, cheio de obras de várias partes do mundo! 🌎

Para conhecer o acervo de pertinho, é só ir até a Avenida Epitácio Pessoa, número 2.480, Lagoa, no Rio de Janeiro - RJ. A Casa Museu funciona de terça a domingo, das 14 às 18h, com ingressos gratuitos nos fins de semana e feriados. 🎫
