  • Worth a visit, if you like history, and see some of the atrocities that occurred at the time of Nazism, very safe place and well organized, and you can schedule to take students.

  • I went to the Holocaust Museum on my last visit to Curitiba. Are strict with security ... the boy that we received was firm as we pass the information, but very polite. The Museum is not very big, but has many interesting things, pictures, stories in suspended panels ... the lighting and sound work give the drama for the Museum. I couldn't make the tour, which seems to be very good, but couldn't take advantage of the space. It's creepy!

  • The Holocaust Museum offers an experience of immersion in the subject. I felt, very refined, sensitive to matters of the Museum. Actually reaches the goal of the Museum, so insightful, because it uses different means and senses (hearing, sight, touch, imagination, interaction) and makes the visitor to stay indifferent or bored in the exhibition.
