I am sure for Brazilians who revere this guy, it is interesting and historical. But my son and I found it strange. The white suited staff and the music gave it a surreal / cult-y / funeral home kind of vibe. I don't want to be harsh and I am sure he is an important figure in Brazilian political history.

A little confused as to the history but still very nice. Don't be in a rush so you can learn more than I did. Also, don't miss the statue on the back side...a couple on a bench. Very cute photo op.

The memorial saves some of the history of Brazil, the current history, and this place is full of things about Kubitschek, a former president of Brazil, if you like to visit historical places, this is a must be on your list

The outside structure is moderately interesting but it is great to learn of the life of a kid raised by a single parent of Czech and Gypsy origin who accomplished so much in his life and changed many things for the Brazilian people!

The memorial has a nice architecture and it is very nice. The exhibition is somewhat interesting for those who knows the history of the former ex-president. It fails in telling the story of JK.

It takes a lot to impress me. Strolling thru the JK Memorial you get the feeling if the Egyptian Pharoahs were around they'd be impressed with Brasilia! An incredible city on a world level.

Learn about the man who had the vision to help develop Brasil. As a part of a day tour of Brasilia, this is a worthwhile stop.

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.
