  • Great little museum. The retired professor and his wife speak English very well!
  • Uninteresting
  • Museum that tells the story and details about the woodcut; the visitation begins with a video demonstrating how the woodcut is made and then you can continue to visit so self-guided. The rooms are numbered to facilitate and, if necessary, for Museum staff to assist. I was surprised with the excellent collection. Also receives temporary exhibitions. Has a beautiful garden behind the Museum. Has a small gift shop. There's no parking, but it is possible to park at the door.

Where to stay in Campos Do Jordao

In keeping with the city's architectural style, most places to stay in Campos do Jordao are cozy wooden guesthouses or inns, rather than large hotel complexes. Concentrated in the neighborhood of Capivari, a couple miles northeast of the city center, Campos do Jordao's accommodations offer a relaxed, country-style atmosphere. Given the demographic of tourists who typically visit the city, you'll struggle to find budget lodging options, such as youth hostels. Reserve your room in advance, especially if visiting during the winter high season (May through August), to avoid disappointment.
