History buffs should make time in their schedule to visit Museu Casa de Benjamin Constant, the well-preserved former home of one of the founding fathers of the Brazilian Republic. The grand 1860s building is replete with antique furniture, documents, photographs, sculptures and other artifacts that once belonged to the Constant family. The well-kept grounds are worth a visit in themselves, offering a shady spot to escape the beating sun and take in some stunning panoramic views across Guanabara Bay.
