  • Built in 1987, the Memorial of indigenous peoples was designed by Oscar Niemeyer in spiral form which refers to a round maloca Yanomami Indians. The space has built area of 2,984, 08m2, with main access via a ramp. Aims to show the diversity and richness of Indian culture on the fly and live. For this purpose, promotes several events with the presence and participation of indigenous representatives from different regions of the country. In the collection, there are pieces representing various tribes, especially the plumária art of Urubú Vulture; wooden benches of the Yawalapiti, Kuikuro and Juruna, masks and musical instruments of the Alto Xingu and Amazon. The Memorial houses a collection of 380 parts, donated by anthropologists Darcy and Berta Ribeiro and meeting in more than 40 years of research by the interior of Brazil. Is one of the rare institutions that count with the participation of Indians in your management. The building suffered works recently.

  • Nice Museum to meet. Next to the Museum you can also meet other points of interest. Have parking facilities.

  • 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.

  • For a museum dedicated to the indigenous people of brasil it lacks substance.
  • A must-to-see place. If you are lucky, you can participate of ritualistic ceremonies.
  • Legal
