Lonely Planet review

This museum maintains exhibitions on Santos Dumont (the Brazilian father of aviation), Air Marshal Eduardo Gomes, the history of Brazilian airmail and the role of Brazil's air force in WWII. There are lots of old planes, motors and flying instruments. Highlights are replicas of Santos Dumont's planes, the 14 Bis and the Demoiselle . You can also arrange guided visits if you call at least three days in advance.
