Memorial of the Indigenous Peoples, Brasilia
(1.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I loved the exhibition that was going on when I went, I was not a long time but I took at MAX. The space is huge.

  • I found the place little explored, especially by the indigenous history and culture that is very rich. I thought that the space can be best leveraged even more standing in front of another landmark of the city.

  • Even after inexplicably run into Museum closed on a common 4:00 pm Wednesday decided to come back the next day, believing in the potential of the place and understand that it is important to my daughter 5 years learn more about indigenous peoples and their customs. On Thursday we are there again. The architecture of the place and the acquis are interesting and great potential in the tourist operation. Sad though it is to see how the site is abandoned. The exterior paint, glass and the internal courtyard. Everything reflects the neglect with this attractive. There is no multimedia features, which further highlights the limitations of employees who Unfortunately are extremely unprepared, uncompromised and worse still disconnected from the workplace. Do not show interest in showing his collection to the few who still insist on coming in. Come out very very very sad.
