Nice monument to the world war 2.
The area is really clean and well looked after, it had the flame between the tower that is guarded 24hrs a day. The 3 men stood up represent the 3 forces... air, sea and land. And the metal sculpture resembles a plane, ship and tank depending on which angle you look at it.
Very nice

Me and my 2.5 old boy went there to see a P-47 Thunderbolt exposed there. Given that he love airplanes, this was a great idea. Unfortunately the airplane is about to go back to Aerospace museum in Campo dos Afonso (deserves a visit)!
At this monument you can see lots of objects from WW2 including Brazilian uniforms, utensils, weapons, etc. One other hotspot in this monument is the great view from Guanabara bay.

This monument, with a beautiful modern non-traditional architecture, is remembering a history of the Brazilian soldiers in the 2nd World War. The texts (in Portugal and English) on tables and the artifacts are describing all the facts about the Brazilian participation in the 2nd WW - some of them were for me really surprising. In the first underground floor, there is a chapel with graves of the Brazilian soldiers, which died during the 2nd WW. It is a very quiet place of full of respect. I recommend to visit it.

This monument to the dead sits in Flamingo Park and recognises the 467 Brazillians who died in Italy in World War 11.It is a clean , cold and neat area but not that special although the views around are great.

On the shores of Enseada da Gloria a swept wing monument rises high above the uniformed soldier always on duty standing vigil with a red/white pennant flag on a long staff. He stands at ease in front of the eternal flame. It is an imposing, yet beautiful monument altogether. A huge parade terrain fronts a set of coal black stairs leading up to his post. There are other parts, including a modern art sculpture and a highly stylized trio of soldiers. There’s also an impressive artillery piece and some water features. Getting to the monument involves a long detour on foot or a “frogger” exercise dodging the racing traffic on Avenida Infante Dom Henrique, aka The Aterro. There don’t seem to be many visitors here.

The Monument to the Dead of World War II (locally called Monumento Nacional aos Mortos da Segunda Guerra Mundial) is mausoleum of 467 soldiers of Brazil army who died in action in Italy during World War II (1939-45 AD). They were buried in a cemetery at Tuscany, Italy. In 1960 their dead bodies were transferred from Italy to Brazil and buried here in this Monument in Rio de Janeiro, located in Santa Teresa area in front of Paris Park just close to Gloria Marina and Flamingo Park.

We walked over to the military museum enticed by the beautiful monument that we had seen in the distance.

There does not appear to be the appropriate infrastructure to get to the museum by foot, as this entails crossing a couple of busy roads with no pedestrian access.

The monument also provides a beautiful view of the bay, and beneath it houses an interesting museum dedicated to the armed forces of Brazil. There isn't a huge amount on show, but the exhibit does provide a concise overview of the armed forces and their history. I for one was surprised that Brazil was the only country from South America to fight in WWII.

A good spot to spend an hour if only for the views.

The monument is fantastic, I love it, but I have an advice for the tourists: go there by taxi or car, i.e. never consider to cross the 'Avenue Aterro do Flamengo' in front of it by foot. It is very dangerous because of the high velocity of the cars as well as because people do not walk regularly on there. You may be robbed. So, disembark the car, cab, whatever, in front of it.

As well as the statue there is a good museum here. For a European, it really showed me that the war really involved the whole world and soldiers from as far away as Brazil were going to the war zones, fighting and dying. The commander of the Brazilian troops campaigned for many years to bring back the soldiers who had died in Italy. There is a room underneath the statue where there are gravestones of the soldiers who died. Although all the narrative is in Portuguese you can piece together the story from the maps and photographs. There are also some relics from the war on display. Entry is free.
If you are at the theatre or at Cinelandia metro it is only about 15 minutes walk south towards the Gloria marina. If you like walking you can continue along the seafront and Flamengo beach.

This place has a beautiful architectural design aligned with the respect and love that should be given to those who fought and died for the cause of the common good. The bodies of the fallen and brave Brazilian soldiers are buried there along with a chapel. In addition, there is a mini-museum with artifacts and lots of information on world war 2 and the intervention of the Brazilian soldiers. I personally loved the old artifacts, technology and the air force area. Great collection of world war 2 details and objects.
