  • Lack of signage and accessibility. I had a stroller, I went straight from the cathedral, and I didn't have any signage of the entrance. I was directed to the ramp and didn't find it too soft to climb with the cart. Getting there, I was forced to leave the baby bag in the locker room. I only had diapers and bottles, I thought it was absurd. Open and see the content, but do not prohibit access. I couldn't find the elevators working, I don't know if it's usual, I ended up not seeing the downstairs. I went on a Friday. Anyway, the space is OK, you have to go once to meet, but you wouldn't come back.

  • The National Art Museum is worth being known for both its peculiar architecture and for its exhibitions by national artists. Admission is free and has two upper and lower exhibition areas. There are no restaurants or shops internally and it is between the national library and the cathedral of Brasilia

  • Very unique. The art was nice too.
  • Very cool from an architectural point of view but exhibitions could be more sophisticated expressing the complexities of Brazil
