This memorial was a 25 minute walk from our hotel. It is an interesting place to visit for a foreigner as it gives some interesting cultural insight. The memorial looks like a tall edifice with a statue on top. It is actually a museum that is mostly below ground. It is a memorial to the man credited at being the... More

JK Memorial is a great option to visit in Brasilia. Over there the visitor has the opportunity to learn about the city and its founder and enthusiast, president Juscelino Kubitscheck, and can also explore the area, which is close to Buriti Palace, the local government palace, to Cine Drive-In, the National Observatory and Clube do Choro.

I assume that JK is the only Brazilian president who has his own memorial. The place is really nice and cozy inside. It shows a brief history of Brasília and President JK.

While the monument is visible and the park bench with JK and his wife are open for photos, the museum is closed on Mondays. This is the same for most of the museums and public attractions in Brasilia. Plan you visit on another day.

I recommend a visit at that interesting place.in Brasilia. There are many kind of clothes wore by the President and his wife Sarah at many special occasions, including the launch party of the Capital. There fotos and documents about Brasilia construction and every coworker of JK and in addition you can watching some videos. The place is cool and modern.... More

We went to Brasilia for a 1 day visit. The memorial was the first stop and was definitely the more interesting for a better comprehension of the overall history of Brasilia. Well organized and kept by bathe JK foundation.
