It's easy to find and will kill 40-50 minutes of your time, but nothing to gag over. Good option for a rainy day.
Good place to learn about the different Brazilian governments. There is even a world globe from Truman offered to the Brazilian president at that time
The gardens are so beautiful and bring a green oasis to a very busy metropolitan area of the city
A real tour through the history of Brazil. It has a beautiful garden behind the museum, good for relaxing and enjoying nature.
