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.

    An ethnic look in all rationality. Deserve much more than a memorial. But, it's worth the intention. Because the native peoples are inspiration and example for great artists, so they should be more respected and with larger spaces and not just an exhibition in the capital of the country.

    Another building of Niemeyer, the closed doors you can see the interesting architecture, is in repairs since may/2017. It is located in front of the JK memorial. There's a statue of an Indian in your entry. We hope that it will be open soon and not stay closed for years.

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.
