Carmen Miranda Museum, Rio de Janeiro

Travel back to the 1940s at Carmen Miranda Museum, a museum entirely dedicated to the glamorous Hollywood actress and singer Carmen Miranda. Located in the Flamengo neighborhood on Avenida Rui Barbosa, the museum displays Miranda's knockout original costumes, jewelry, and famous five-inch-high, sequin-covered shoes. Out of over 3,000 personal items, the museum staff has chosen nearly 200--including records, movie posters, and photos--for the permanent exhibition. Watch clips from her filmography or take pictures next to her statue, standing just outside the museum building. There's so much to see in this circular building designed by modernist architect Affonso Eduardo Reidy, you may not be able to get through it all in one day. So stop by again on a rainy day--admission is free.

  • The park is surrounded by a very good neighborhood and contains a good deal of space to play with dogs, to run and to play with kids. There is a police man in the entrance, which makes the place safer...  more »
  • Result of multiple fills to gain ground to the sea, made during the 1920s, the beach of Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro is formed by a wide strip of fine white sand and a sea so calm that makes it a formidable body of water where at sunset are reflected the lights of the city. The beautiful landscape is crowned by the vision of the bread of sugar and the morro de Urca in the background, showing from this beach in all its glory.

  • Dark place, has only black lights as lighting. The feeling is to be going into a House of prostitution. Karaoke sound with noise. Underserved portions and aspect of the dirty kitchen. Only a waiter who didn't leave the counter to serve. It is necessary to get the drink. And as if that wasn't enough, the owner still calculates the value of the commands. The error happened with me and then with two friends. It was necessary to complain.
