  • When we arrived we were very well received by a lady who showed some things. Then she said that her husband knew all about names, origin of names and coats of arms. However, when we were going to ask him something, the same answer someone else who had arrived after. Really this place is worth the visit. Small place, with some knives and pictures of coats of arms. The entrance had to be free. What you see and hear there can be seen on the internet. Waste of time.

  • Was one of the best tours I've done in Serra Gaúcha. The Museum is responsive, attentive and very cultured, gives a great history lesson. Has a collection well wide and many items were made by him, including the castle itself. Gratifying to know your gift and your passion for the art of heraldry. Look to see the expansion of the Castle and buy our coat of arms. Super recommend!

  • A castle being built by a dreamer, and each item above was done by himself. You can also order the coat of your family and discover the origin of your name! In the end be sure to visit the gift shop and find fascinating items, including medieval clothes! Recommend meet!!

  • Great place to enjoy a huge collection of knives, Pocket knives, swords and medieval weapons; many were used in wars and revolutions. In addition to the entire collection, you can still have a review of your last name and see where they came from your amcetrais. The Museum's castle was built by the bare hands of owner forming your childhood dream. To the entire family works at the Museum and live this history. Each piece in the collection has your story. Worth knowing and you can still order the coat of arms of your family that will be etched and hand-drawn.

  • It's not exactly a "medieval Museum" as the name suggests, and an exhibition of weapons (most of them, including, has nothing to do with the Medieval Era). The owners were very friendly and the local focus are the family crests. I liked what was offered, but I was expecting something totally different.
