Are you planning your visit to Inhotim? Check out everything you need to take to the park, as well as what you need to wear, to make the most of this experience.
Wear comfortable clothes
Currently, Inhotim has 110 acres open for visitation. Just to give you idea, this corresponds to more than 100 soccer fields! Therefore, choosing light and appropriate clothing is crucial to walk around artworks and galleries. As for footwear, prefer closed shoes, like sneakers, since there are paths with ups and downs, cobbled streets and passages within the forest.
Organize your bag
Write this down: a camera is essential. The art-garden duo, together with a landscape that mixes Atlantic Forest and Cerrado (Brazilian Savannah), is unique and yields incredible images. Photos are not allowed inside the galleries, but outdoors, the sky is the limit for creativity! Those who use their cellphones to shoot and access the Instagram app can even use the hashtag #inhotim to post. Make sure you dont forget your sunscreen, sunglasses and a jacket, as in autumn and winter the days begin with the regions typical cold mist.
Check the weather forecast
If the day is hot, a cap or a hat will protect you from the sun. Tip: To stay hydrated, carry a bottle of water on hand. Even though it is not allowed to bring food and drinks into Inhotim, you can fill up your water bottle in one of the water fountains located at strategic points around the park, such as at the reception, the exit from Galeria Adriana Varejão or the entrance of the letters garden by Marilá Dardot. If the forecast is for rain, take an umbrella or raincoat along.
