Bromeliaceae has about 3.503 species distributed in 59 genera. Canistropsis and Nidularium are endemic of Brazil and have their diversity center in the Atlantic Forest Domain. The goal of this study was to inventory and describe the taxa present in the park, fournishing informations and identification keys to genera and species, as long as information about the geographic distribution and occurrence along the park area. The bibliographic search was done through the principal family monographs, and by visiting the main Rio de Janeiro herbaria. The field work consisted of collecting expeditions in the National Park. The descriptions and analysis were done following current literature and online data. Eight taxa were inventoried, being one of Canistropsis and seven of Nidularium.
