Reviewed 14 October 2013

Even if you are not a big history buff, you will become one here. The blend of history and beauty of art work so well together, you feel you are having a true experience, not a mundane visit. The architecture is gorgeous! And in the "armory", I love the armor for the horses...AND the dog! I will never tire of visiting it!

“Cultural attraction in Recife area”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Great place to visit in Recife!! If you are interested to get to see some art, history, and one of the most greatest personal weapons collection, worth to spend few ours there. Note: if you are considering to visit Instituto Brennand, drive or take a taxi - public transportation in the area is complicated.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The place is very beautifull, but the location is far. With public transport it takes long time (unfortunately Brazil has huge problems regarding public transport). Cost of entrance is expensive (R$18/person).
There you find some exhibition (Guns, Objects, Pictures). There is also a nice garden.
For those tourists with short time I would no recommend.

“For "game of thrones" fans”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This institution was founded by the colector Ricardo Brennand and contains every piece of history that he could acquire through his life. It has many art works, artefacts, but specialy one of the largest weaponry collections of the world. If you are an historian, a history lover or you are just visiting the city; it's very advisable that you go there. Also the enviroment is really plesant,
