  • The House is a museum that exhibits various pieces in woodcut of recent times. Moreover, they teach through video and banners, as the technique is used and its different modalities. People who monitor the rooms are super nice and know a lot about the subject and about the exhibits. It's worth a lot to meet the House and learn a little about the subject. By the way the House is very nice. Congratulations to the team that maintains and administers the Museum by skill and hard work.

  • Contents of the House totally amazing. We were afraid of pay input. But every room we entered the art of woodcut impressed us. Beautiful and culturally.

  • We went in without much pretension, but surprised us! There are beautiful woodcuts, is well organized. As I didn't know even what was woodcuts, I walked out of there happy to have known more an art form. Sure, it's worth the visit! Admission is 8 reais. It is possible to go by bus, just grab the line Pica Pau.
