  • It's worth a lot to meet the architecture of colonial houses inside and has several permanent exhibitions very cute to enjoy. Worth stopping by.

  • Worth to visit the beautiful colonial architecture and usually host travelling exhibitions. When I went was with an exhibition about the Indians of the region which are in a still preserved area of the Atlantic forest in the State of Rio de Janeiro. There was a series of photographs, murals and engravings on their culture, being almost a dip in time to those who are accustomed to the jungles of urban stones.

  • Worth spending 1 hour stay in town visiting the House of culture. The staff are very friendly, explain with a lot of patience. And you can still take a souvenir of the city.

  • Estive no local durante a "Mesa Zé Kleber - Direitos dos Povos Caiçaras" na FLIP 2016, Achei o lugar aconchegante apesar de um pouco abafado, o fato é que tinha muita gente.
  • Vale a visita
  • A riqueza cultural de Paraty é fascinante!
  • Excelente opção de lazer e cultura em Paraty. Vale a visita.
  • Entrada gratuita. Faz bons trabalhos com a comunidade local, mas poderia ter melhores exposições.
