  • The place is enormous, but it left me with little taste to enter and to realize that there were so many exhibitions as I imagined.

  • The place is beautiful, odd architecture. One of the famous works of Oscar Niemeyer. It's worth a visit because it always has exhibitions and art samples. Very good.

  • Visit the National Museum's script required of all tourists visiting the federal capital. Really is a monumental work both outside as internally. At least not to be missed. Is located next to the Cathedral of Brasilia, another historical monument in the capital.

  • Incredible. One of the finest museums I have ever seen. Wonderful architecture.
  • Muito bom!
  • The building is wonderful but it was closed the day I visited.
  • Though the exhibit I saw inside was basic, this building is a must see because of its iconic architecture. Take time to revel in the space inside and under the curving passageway on the exterior of the building. True aesthetic brilliance.
  • Nice open environment and easy to access. Check if there's the main (upper floor) is open before planning a visit.
