  • A pleasant stroll with family or friends, to know the Museum, other structures of the fortress and still enjoying the Guanabara Bay in a well-hidden corner in Urca. Super recommend. The visits are guided and schedule.

  • Museum that is located in the neighborhood of Urca, keeps the memory of the founding of the city of Rio de Janeiro for being in a military area, access is restricted. The visits should be scheduled and respect a schedule determined. It's always good to try to inform you before not to waste the trip.

  • I took part in a guided tour throughout the fortress that sits on the Hill dog face. The Guide, SD. Wilhelm, had a great knowledge of the history of the river and made an excellent guiding. The beauty is unparalleled and has a stunning view of the entrance to the Bay, the Bay itself and Niteroi, including the fortress of Santa Cruz. Must-see for lovers of history, nature and culture.
