It is a great place to understand Brasilia's history, from cornerstone to it's foundation, you will get a glimpse of the so called Brazilian way to solve problems. Memorabilia and the precarious library that guided Brazil towards 2nd half of 20th century!

I visited the site with my family , the monument outside its really impressive , and you have a great view of the city . We went in the museum, payed the 10 reais entry fee, won't recommend going in, there is nothing much to see inside .

Clean, but I didn´t entered the memorial. Took some photgraphs outside. From the northside driving by it looks like people, who are entering the memorial or leaving, are stepping in or out of the water.

If you have a car and can drive around, you cannot miss on the Eixo Monumental this Memorial to the President of Brazil that had the vision to move the capital out of Rio de Janeiro.

This is a monument to the much beloved "JK" who was the father of Brazilia and over saw the building of the Capitol in the 80's when he was president.

There are some fascinating personal items in the museum and it does tell his story. His family have made a very important contribution . But I do think much more could be done, both in adding to the narrative and having more about the creation of Brasilia and making it more welcoming inside. He was a key figure in Brazilian... More

Lots of photos and great interactive screens that document different periods and people in JK's life -- very good overview of history and politics of Brazil during his and his wife's lifetime

The whole place had a very creepy feel. Obviously the city and the people worship Kubitschek - and I don't mean admire I mean worship - but there really is nothing interesting in the museum. And the fact that the guy is buried in his own museum to me is really bizarre. I would take a pass.
