A grand colonial building set in spacious gardens is the setting for this museum dedicated to the life and works of Heitor Villa-Lobos, Brazil's best-known classical composer. Among the items related to Villa-Lobos's life and works are handwritten compositions, conducting batons, and numerous photographs.
