  • The Lúcio Costa Space is well hidden at the Plaza of the three powers, but well worth the visit! It's quite interesting! Has a huge model of the pilot plan. Loved it!

  • The place has more history about the construction of Brasília, a huge model of the capital, pictures of the buildings and the early pioneers. It's stuffy inside only has a fan that points pro responsible for the place, the room is spacious but if there is a large volume of people are very uncomfortable for being stuffy. The trick is to go without prey, with light clothes and bottle of water. There are a few things to read. Small children are impatient, was not the case in my 7 years old but has already had children and the parents couldn't stay long.

  • Look at the situation. In the middle of the Square manumental 3 Powers made a small basement with ladder descensional and if built this Space, urban planner Lucio Costa, as such was the man who designed all the streets, avenues, blocks, Superblocks of the pilot plan of Brasília, including all its equipment and urban spaces, the very idea of the plane with the South and North wings, a gigantic work, you can imagine. Then the work of Lucius has the same, or greater, importance than Oscar Niemeyer, designer a good number of buildings, buildings and certain works. It was built to celebrate the 90 years of Lúcio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer project, opened in 1992. Contained therein: mockup of Brasília, tactile mockup of the plane, panels with copies of the Pilot Plan project, historical photos of the construction and opening. Was missing the main part-a big exhibition on the Lúcio Costa.

  • Small gallery where are exposed through models, drawings and photographs the construction of Brasilia by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in collaboration with the landscape architect Burle Marx, and the ceramist Athos Bucão. It deserves a small look to get a general idea of the city

  • History of the founding of the city. The model is beautiful, but is in need of restoration. The tactile model is a differential, as well as the lift which ensures accessibility.
