The Memorial is a great place to know the man who build Brasília. You can get in your library and see how he used to work, the projects, his simple lifestyle. The Memorial was a project of Niemeyer and have a great collection of JK objects. A timeline ilustrated with videos, photos and correspondence, medals.

If you´re interested in Brasilia history and its founder, very good museum. Misses some more interactive things, but really good anyhow. If not, take it from outside. JK´s tomb is not nice.

Very informative about the founder, history and development of Brasilia. Lots of fotos, multimedia info, books, and objects from JK's time.

Very impressive. One can get to know much more about the president responsible to build Brasilia. His life is depicted through many perspectives, from the public man, president and well-known world-wide, to this personal life and passions. Very well organised. If you are interested about history, it is definitely a nice place to visit.

I was not too interested on visiting this Memorial but I was surprised of how much I actually enjoyed my time visiting. The staff was very courteous and the Memorial very informative.

I wonder why TripAdvisor insists in one having to do a 100 character review about this. It's just silly, as some so called monuments.

JK was (and still is) a deeply-admired man in Brasil. His vision for the capital city was astonishing, and his memorial "complex" is full of interesting history.

It is interesting from a historical point of view, learning a bit more about the president who build Brasilia. Our guide seemed to be a bit fanatic about JK, talking as if he had never sinned. The tomb inside with the president's remains in a darkened red room was a tad morbid. Didn't let my small kids in so they... More

As an American who was taught years and years of US History and not a single unit on South American or Brazilian history, I absolutely loved this museum. It was the first time I can remember going to a historical museum where everything was new to me. Brazil is extremely proud of Kubitschek and Brasilia, and it showed in the... More
