Museu Histórico Nacional of Rio Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Located close to the Praça Âncora, the National History Museum boasts impressive collections which will be of inestimable value to anyone interested in Brazil's history: paintings, imperial carriages, Pedro II's throne, and even the goose feather Isabel used to sign the papers abolishing slavery. Housed in a former 17C fort, the museum is a must-see, especially since a successful renovation has ensured the collections are done full justice.
