Vacation Travel Guide

National Museum of the Republic showing modern architecture and a city

Attend art exhibitions and watch movies inside a captivating building that resembles a UFO. Admire the architecture and learn about Brazilian art.

Underneath the spectacular dome-shaped National Museum of the Republic are traveling exhibitions of renowned Brazilian and foreign artists. Go on an art exploration and study the building’s futuristic design. It is a typical example of the work of the city’s leading architect, Oscar Niemeyer. His buildings are known for their curves and unusual forms.

Spend a few moments looking over the white concrete edifice, which reaches a height of 86.3 feet (26.3 meters) at its peak. Enter the museum via the elevated ramp that continues around the building’s interior. Inside, you will find four floors housing a large exhibition area, a laboratory and two auditoriums.

Browse works of art which can cover multiple genres and include paintings, sculptures and installations. Attend lectures and seminars and watch movies on themes relating to art and the history of Brazil.

Take a guided tour to learn about the architectural works of Oscar Niemeyer, one of Brazil’s foremost architects. Tours must be booked in advance; details are on the website of Brasília’s State Secretary of Culture. During your visit, you may see cultural activities hosted in the museum’s external area.

The National Museum of the Republic is open Tuesday to Sunday, from morning until early evening and admission is free.

The museum is part of the Cultural Complex of the Republic, which also includes the National Library of Brasília. After your art tour, go over to the library, another building designed by Oscar Niemeyer. Unlike some of his other structures, this one has a regular shape. Inside are reading rooms and more than 300,000 items.

The museum, library and cultural complex are located on the Monumental Axis, Brasília’s central avenue. Arrive by metro or by taking the bus, which stops at various places along the massive boulevard. Explore some of the nearby attractions while you are in the neighborhood. They include the Cathedral of Brasília, the National Congress and the Three Powers Plaza.

"The hotel is really nice, beautiful and warm. The downside was the price of food and beverage. REALLY EXPENSIVE. I paid R$29,00 about $5 for a little bottle of Panna. Also they charge for ice, which should be free."
