The sign annoying the closure says the collection is being restored and the pin transferred to the new Museum of Image and Sound being constructed in Copacabana.

The park is surrounded by a very good neighborhood and contains a good deal of space to play with dogs, to run and to play with kids. There is a police man in the entrance, which makes the place safer. You don’t have to pay...More

This museum is CLOSED and has been for some time. Don't try and go. There's a sign saying its closed for our security - not sure what that means - and no idea when it will reopen.

The guards at the museum said that hopefully the contents of the museum will be moved to a central city location soon. Let's hope it's to a location that is easier to find.

Have no idea why we visited this hard-to-find, out-of-the-way museum. It was a complete waste of time, a tacky, cheesy, dusty display. Do yourself a favor: STAY AWAY!

See uploaded pic for posted announcement of closure for 'your security'. If there's a web presence, i'd check it first before coming to this location.

A fruit basket hat, Hollywood musical movies - that's pretty much all I knew about Carmen Miranda. I didn't even realise she was Brazilian until I moved here. On a rainy day in Rio, what do you do? Visiting a museum seemed like a good...More
