Detailed history of Brazillian participation in the Second World War with lots of artifacts. Free entry. We took just over an hour to cover the rooms. The outside grounds are worth a quick visit too if you are nearby and the museum is closed.

Small museum in the centre of the city, with items mainly about the second world war in Europe and Asia. Not really suitable for little children.

Respectful number of items, well maintained and shares a very nice part of the Brazilian history. Ideal for WWII history fans, but also recommend to all kinds of public. Free of charge.

Brazil doesn't have a rich story as far as World War II goes but still interesting and this museum tells the story very detailed I would recommend for people who enjoy war history

Awesome museum, must go place for history fans. Brazilian participation in WW2 was not huge in numbers, but there was no lack of courage, as you can see here.

Given Brazil's insignificant participation in WWII - the museum is quite good - some nice photographs, weapons, uniforms and a fighter plane.
