“Impressive monument”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

The JK memorial is a very impressive monument from outside and inside also very informative. Worth the short drive on the axis and the modest entrance fee to visit this place.

“One of the few pieces of history”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

For a city that is so new, the memorial is one of the only pieces of historical value in Brasilia. Inside there's documentation about the birth of the city.

It is the only touristic place in Brasilia that charges for admission, but it is worth if you want to get all information about the history of the youngest city in South America.

“A thoughtful tribute”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

I did not know much about Kubitschek prior to my visit, and I found this small museum to be an elegant, elegiac tribute to a key figure in Brazil's history. The Niemeyer-designed building is striking. It houses memorabilia from JK's life, as well as his earthly remains under a gorgeous stained glass artwork illuminated from above with natural light. A modest fee (R$10) maintains the monument. There is a nice gift shop at the end.
