If you want to understand the origins of Brasilia, it's here where you have to start your journey of discoveries, you have to start from the President Juscelino Kubitschek the one who decided to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro to a place that didn't exist before: Brasilia.
Inside you will discover his life and in the same time the birth and the life of Brasilia.
The Memorial is a dive into post-war Brazilian history. You will se many photos and many objects used in the normal life of the president.
Definitively it's a very interesting place!

This memorial was built in honor of former president Juscelino Kubitschek. Right under the tall statue, there is a very nice museum with the president's personal belongings and also all the history of Brasilia, which was built under his government. The museum is very nicely put together and well worth the visit.

Museu que guarda a história e a memória do ex-presidente Juscelino Kubitscheck, idealizador e fundador de Brasília. Foi construído no local onde foi celebrada a 1ª missa da nova capital. Há vários objetos que pertenceram a JK, livros do seu acervo particular, fotos familiares, inclusive a faixa presidencial. Seus restos mortais também estão lá. Tem, ainda, café e lojinha de souvenirs. Do lado de fora, uma escultura dele acenando, sobre um pedestal.
