I found this set of museums to be a bit of a mixed bag - the art was good, as was the camera section, but I was less taken by the history of the police. It's worth a wander round though - free, another example...More

Brazil has had lots of currencies, and this place has an excellent museum on the upstairs floor with examples going back to the Empire of Brazil. The staff is also very nice and called another museum for us to check whether it was open.

The palace makes part of a very beautiful area to have promenades, to relax and to try the tacaca de dona Zita. The palace itself is closed on Saturday afternoon.

Now a multi-sectioned museum beautifully restored where a local docent guides you through the sections you explore. A young Brazilian, who spoke English, provided an exceptional historical overview of the Palace. He discreetly shared insights into general Brazilian development and how 20-somethings perceive political changes....More
