Rio de Janeiro are not only made up of beaches, and exuberant nature, but the cultural life in Rio de Janeiro is also very exciting, with exhibitions, museums and events. In respect, we’ll highlight the National Historic Museum, whose circuit of permanent exhibitions was revitalized, and which now has a new look to it. This is a good occasion to visit the museum, founded in 1922 and considered one of the most important in the country.
Between the novelty of the National Historic Museum, we can find “the Portuguese in the world” which narrates the expansion of the Portuguese navigation during the years 1415-1822, one of which is Brazil’s colonization and of the declaration of independence on behalf of Dom Pedro I. “Caminha’s Letter is narrated by the voice of the actor named Paulo Autran, with special effects that relive the Portuguese navigator’s routes between the year 1415 and 1557. Other two exhibitions “The Nations Construction” and “The Population Reconstruction” both respectively reveal details of Brazil’s main historic events in two periods: 1822-1889 and from 1889 until today.
Since the museum is near Praça XV, we also recommend to visit the Imperial Palace, the Cultural Center of Banco do Brazil, the Mail cultural space and the Casa France- Brazil that accommodates the city’s best works of art.
To be better familiar with the city’s cultural events, we recommend to stay in a Bed & Breakfast in Rio De Janeiro and to enjoy the real Carioca hospitality. The Bed & Breakfast Brazil network, presents on the website all options of the B&B in Rio. Make your choice and enjoy the cultural life of the “Wonderful city”.
