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.

This is a very good way to learn about the history of Brasil. You have to take your time.But the only thing that I didn't like so much was the huge statue of the president that was so high and you can't go near it.

The museum is very interesting, telling the story of JK through Brazilian history. It's very interactive and easy to digest information.

This is a beautiful monument. Beautiful architecture, very good taste. Former president and city´s founder JK is buried there. One should go by car and parking isn´t difficult. You pay an entrance fee but not very expensive. It is about the former president achievements. The way the displays are done is very nice. It is a good visit for a... More

Impressive, monumental and awful in the idea to put a huge statue of president so high and visible...egoistic, cult of personality...

To get a better understanding of the history of Brasilia and how it came to being, this is a must place to start your city tour. Actually the memorial is located on the crest of the hill overlooking downtown and the Congress so you start here and work your way down the hill on the one-way boulevard. President Kubitschek was...

The Memorial JK mixes some former Brazilian president Juscelino Kubitschek memorabilia with photos and information on Brasilia's 56 year history, plus JK's mausoleum. It's one of the few paid attractions in the city, but at R$ 10 (less than US$ 3), it is well worth the visit. Unfortunately, opening days are uncertain - it is closed on many holidays when... More

I found this monument and museum to be quite fascinating. I very much enjoyed learning about how Brasilia became the capital of Brazil under the leadership of Juscelino Kubitschek. An impressive bronze statue of JK stands high above the building and can be seen from afar. This memorial site is JK’s final resting place.
