Memorial of the Indigenous Peoples, Brasilia

1.9
#16 of 53 in Museums in Brasilia
Designed by modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer, Memorial of the Indigenous Peoples was inspired by the round huts of the Yanomami people. The interior space in which the collection of indigenous artifacts is displayed, accessed by a ramp, surrounds a circular, glass-fronted courtyard. Of note amongst the collection are the feather art of the Urubu-Kaapor, wooden benches of the Yawalapiti, Kuikuro and Jurunas, and masks and musical instruments of the Alto Xingu and Amazonas regions.

  • There's nothing!!!! A little something here and there, nothing seems unique. Neither idea is original. But that's only my opinion, check out if you want, because this forgetful Memorial is opposite the JK Memorial, which only increases the disappointment.

  • I went with two children of 5 years. They loved. Has a small exhibition of objects and indigenous art. The date was rolling a presentation as well. Well interesting.

  • Noteworthy in the midst of so much aggression that indigenous peoples in Brazil are suffering-in the trees there are the name of the Brazilian indigenous and ethnic groups around, most of the organs of the Federal District. Be sure to visit qd is in Brasilia, near the Buriti and Mané Garrincha.

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.
