Forever held dear to his heart whilst alive, the Jardim Botanico provides the perfect setting for a new permanent installation charting the pivotal phases of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s life all the way from childhood to his success in the US and through to the twilight years. As he used to stroll through the Botanical Gardens, he no doubt took inspiration from the surrounding flora and fauna for his music and the space dedicated to his memory seeks to bring the two together.

Jobim’s music itself needs no introduction, but collections of photos, projections, manuscripts and scores are used to portray his life story along with personal effects including his trademark panama hat. The Weimar piano on which songs like 'Garota de Ipanema' were first played is also on public display for the first time.
