  • The Museum is impressive! Very organized and has a great structure! For those who like history, Museum or simply like to know more about the Holocaust Museum has a very nice collection, telling the story of several Jews who live in the State of Paraná, as well as objects, videos and audios that tell the story of the Jewish people suffered. Is very worthwhile! I was surprised positively!

  • As exciting as visiting a concentration camp. The exhibition is very well set and the account version of the very people who experienced the Holocaust. The Museum makes sure to be impartial: it is to explain the context in which Hitler assumed power, the Jewish resistance movements, and still makes a rescue of the tragedies that have marked the past century and this: Holomodor, dictatorships in Asia, wars in Africa, the dictatorship in Brazil ... is a real history lesson and a lesson in tolerance and peace. I strongly recommend you take children above 12 years old (the Museum is really impressive) to understand the historical significance of the Holocaust and the importance of respect and culture of peace. Oh, and the best: admission is free:)
