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.

  • I think it's wonderful that the Museum exists, but there is no information that it was closed. I had to personally go and see.

  • This museum is CLOSED and has been for some time. Don't try and go. There's a sign saying its closed for our security - not sure what that means - and no idea when it will reopen. 
  • A lousy storing garments of diva Carmen Miranda who was treated as the daughter of the servant the Museum was horrible was handled in the FUNARJ, but no were capable of doing nothing, thank goodness now everything's at the Museum of Image and sound that has to inaugurate this year by 2015 there will be a plan just for you, I'm finally awake these Brazilians!
