    This is a small military museum located inside the military base Fort Copacabana.

    There is a small entrance fee to the fort which includes the museum. We noticed many people just wanted to see the views, go to the cafes including a branch of the Confeitaria Colombo. They seemed to just skip the museum.

    It is an interesting diversion going through the military history of Brazil since the arrival of the Portuguese.

    Though the museum/ palace is a little run down, it is still an important tourist destination. It is cheap entrance or you can go on the free day, check the website for updated info (things always change). The most interesting parts is the giant painting called "A Pátria" that represents the beginnings of Brazil as a republic. At the top of the palace you can enter the room where Presidente Getúlio Vargas committed suicide and even see the pajamas on display in a glass cabinet. Therefore, not the most glamorous museum, but certainly an important one for history buffs.

    It was not easy to get to this place by taxi but we managed ! We visited this submarine on our own since it is difficult in Brazil to get any another language than portugese. A movie inside gives you the history and how it works with pictures so that you can understand.
    I am not an engineer but it was impressive for me to enter for the first time a submarine ! One really realizes how special and tough the working conditions are on board. I was also impressed by the size.
