This memorial is deddicated to Brazillian president that built Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. There are some pictures and artfacts that belong to him, there is a mortuary chamber, were his body is held. There are not a lot of things to see, but it is worth the visit.

Interesting enough, but a tad underwhelming. I was expecting a bit more architectural grandeur, but it's more the outside that impresses than the inside.

I hoped for a more instructive visit but, instead, i didn´t find much information. The brazilians talk a lot about JK but, unfortunately, the visited didn´t attended my expectations

The JK memorial is a very impressive monument from outside and inside also very informative. Worth the short drive on the axis and the modest entrance fee to visit this place.
