My hotel, Hotel Novo Mundo, is next door to this park and residence of the former President of Brazil. The grounds are stunning, and the building itself was beautiful. The exhibits were not open when I visited, so I was able to see the museum...More

We did not actually go into the museum. We walked around the grounds of the park, and it's a nice respite from the urban surroundings. It was interesting to note that this had previously been the presidential palace, and where Getulio Vargas took his life.

It was a nice way to cool off for a few hours. I loved the paintings. It was a bit sparse though. I don't know if it was that time of year.

This museum was one of the symbol of richness and powerless of the elite that was working with coffee cultivation and it preserves good antiquities from the republican period.

This was the only museum that I visited in Rio, and I probably would not have come here if it wasn't located almost opposite of my hotel, which would have been a shame. It's right by Catete metro station and it offers a great glimpse...More
