  • For those who come to Brasília is a mandatory place of visit. Easily accessible and with a remarkable historical collection.

  • The architecture looks like a flying saucer, when entering the museum, the sensation is to enter some other dimension and has several very interesting exhibitions.

  • The National Museum has a very different and intriguing construction. Space has great itinerant exhibitions. I Went on two different opportunities, but I thought it might be better organized and have a better service.
