I really like this museum and also my students when I took them there to know a little bit more about their own history. I believe you should never forget this moment in our lives.

When I got there, there was a exhibition going on which had many paintings done by people that had been held prisioners during Brazil's dictatorship times. It was one of most impressive things I've seen. Besides that, the building in which the museum is located...More

Now part of the International Sites of Conscience, important museum to visit to learn about the repression that took place under the recent dictatorship in Brazil. Interesting site, in the old police building.
