National Archives

The V International Colloquium on Philosophy of Neuroscience will be held in the National Archives. This is a fundamental institution for the preservation of Brazilian history and culture. Established in 1838, its primary role is to manage, preserve, and provide public access to the country's documentary heritage. Housed in a historic building that once served as the Brazilian Mint, the National Archives holds an impressive collection of documents, including colonial records, government documents, maps, and photographs, spanning over five centuries. This collection is invaluable for researchers, historians, and the public interested in exploring the history and development of Brazil.

The National Archives is located in the Praça da República area of Rio de Janeiro. It is easily accessible through various modes of public transportation. People can reach it by metro or train, via the Central do Brasil station. From the station, it's just a short walk to the National Archives. Additionally, several bus lines serve the area, making it convenient for visitors to access the institution from different parts of the city. The proximity of the National Archives to other historical and cultural landmarks in the city center also makes it a convenient destination for tourists and researchers alike.
