Lonely Planet review

Housed in the neoclassical Palácio Itamaraty , the Museum of History and Diplomacy served as the private presidential home from 1889 until 1897. The museum has an impressive collection of art, antiques and maps. Visits are by guided 45-minute tours. Call ahead to ensure you get an English-speaking guide. The museum is just a short walk northwest of Presidente Vargas metro station.
