“An excellent little museum, a great family Sunday outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2007

If you want to see life as the Cariocas live it, come to this park on a typical Sunday. There are rides for the kids, hot dogs and cotton candy, the zoo--and to top it off, an excellent small museum with some ethnological 'art' pieces of great presence and beauty.
