The Museum of Tomorrow (Museu do Amanhã in the country's native Portuguese) is a stunning architectural wonder that recently opened its doors to the public in Rio de Janeiro. The 15,000-square-meter structure helps refocus the spotlight on Rio de Janeiro, who is getting ready to host the 2016 Summer Olympics later this year.

Designed by iconic spanish architect santiago calatrava, the Museum of Tomorrow is set up on a pier that allows its elongated form to stretch out above the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the main facets of the city's Porta Maravilhosa urban redevelopment plan. Set up as a science museum, the Museum of Tomorrow is sure to tempt any visitors in town for the games and beyond.
