We want to be a MAR of Friends: to form a community of people who identify with MAR and want to follow us closely. When you join MAR of Friends, you will have access to exclusive content, be able to discover what goes on backstage and communicate more closely with the museum. Below you will find some of the benefits, which you can exchange for your points.
You will earn one point for every Real donated. Your points can then be exchanged for Museu de Arte do Rio special treats and activities below.
If you would like your product to be sent outside of Brazil, please contact us at: email@example.com
