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.

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.

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...
