  • Not to be missed when visiting the main monuments of Brasilia and making a detour. You will have a better understanding of this atypical city. A very large model will allow you to locate the neighborhoods of the city and its geometry.

  • Espaço Lúcio Costa is located right in the square of the three powers, being a very interesting place because it brings the mockup of all the city of Brasilia, very nice and interesting, a great family walk and a great place for those who come to Brasilia to know.

  • Right in the center of the square of the three powers is this excellent space! There is a very realistic model of Brasilia and with a wealth of details. Well worth knowing!

  • Beautiful model of the city of Brasilia. It needs a makeover, the lighting of the regions does not work, but it is a great history class.

  • The proposal to show steps of the construction of Brasilia and its representation in the model is great. The problem is in the structure. The lighting is lousy, quiet place. Wheelchair access is bad. The side slopes of the mockup are being corrosited. It needs, as a whole, a modernization. However, it is still mandatory to know better BSB.
