    Walking recently by this pleasant Street from Botafogo, was interested in knowing the Museum and the beautiful building in which it is installed. Unfortunately, however, was closed and in touch by phone, I was told that there's no forecast for reopening. Too bad!

    July 2017: STILL CLOSED - do NOT rely on the website, which apparently they have not updated, and which lists opening times!

    Beautiful samples of clothing and jewelry of indigenous groups of Brazil. Very interesting videos. Only in Portuguese, but I was assisted by a very helpful staff person, and I was able to understand a lot with my limited Spanish. I was particularly interested in the video on beads in various cultures and how Africans made beads from recycled glass. Excellent air conditioning

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
