“A must for those interested in Brazilian history!”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

A wonderful home that fully reflects the complex man who had such an immense impact on the Republic. The pleasant garden and grounds offer a welcome respite from the noise and bustle of Botafogo.
If you visit, you MUST go to the Museu do Indio a few blocks away.

“I think he's rich!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

My 7 year old went on a field trip and really enjoyed it. Among other things she said the owner was a short man who likes to write. Also "I think he's rich!". Plus, she saw the bed he died in! A fun way to end an educational field trip!!
