Museu do Holocausto de Curitiba, Curitiba

4.5
#4 of 45 in Museums in Curitiba
Home to an old Jewish community, the city opened Museu do Holocausto de Curitiba in 2011, the first and only institution of its kind in Brazil. You can take a free guided tour here, or choose to visit the exhibit at your own pace. Many displays are interactive, with original materials, such as numerous audio and visual recordings of survivor testimonies. The museum aims to preserve the memory of the Holocaust in the words of its victims, and to honor those who helped them and fought against hatred, racism, and prejudice. The museum is located inside the newly-built synagogue, which serves as a cultural and religious center of Jewish life here.

    The Museum is excellent, but what made the visit spectacular were the stories told by Charles Reiss during our visit, in particular the story of your grandmother.

    Worth so much to know! Try the tour well worth knowing the history and understand the exhibits that refer to the Holocaust. The place is very clean and has a huge cart of officials.

    Another unmissable ride, for those who enjoy history, culture. The Museum offers an experience in this period of history, without being aggressive. Through a walking tour through the history of the Holocaust, but all done with great care, respect, without focus on the horrors of war.

    My husband and I didn't know that the visit had to be scheduled (the site didn't have that information clearly accessing by phone), we tried to call several times before you move down there and no one was there. We took a cab and arrived there at 9:30 and let us not, even with few visitors. Explained that the schedule has to be done with a minimum of 12 hours in advance (with the speech that the recommendation is the Firehouse. Compared with the tragedy occurred due to overcrowding of the Boite Kiss, to have an idea ...), but our return flight to the ES was the 6:30 in the morning the next day. It would therefore be impossible to schedule a visit. We explain this whole situation for employees and still wouldn't let us in. Asked if someone who had scheduled missing, we could enter and the official said that only you would know that in the last minute. Back at 11 p.m. (another Taxi) to try to enter again (since the Museum closes 12:00 on Sundays) and once again we were barred at the gate. We believe that the service was surly and unnecessarily strict. I think it lacked respect, empathy and common sense with tourists who come from afar with the intention of visiting the Museum. We were delighted with the city, however this event distasteful discouraged enough to desire to return someday to the cab driver who took us in second time was upset and apologized for the treatment given by countrymen. Looks like they're doing you a favor by opening the doors. Pitiful.

    The Museum has great structure, it is very safe, well equipped and features audio-visual capabilities to explain the events. This is a place to reflect on the horrors of war.

    Heavy environment since a sad side of human history, but it is worth the visit, mainly to see the current society is still practicing the same acts, but differently. Necessary prior scheduling.

    Worth the visit, but has few objects on display, some of them are replicas and other are not so interesting. The light and music make a difference. The tour seemed a bit tiresome. It is necessary to schedule a visit.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
