  • This is amazing I love Stefan Zweigs books it's sad that he had to Leave Europe & that he & Lotte killed themselfes what a great loss for the World! It hurt him to loose his Austria & Vienna his beloved home town. I liked the Museum, to see where Mr. Zweig & Lotte lived. He loved Brazil cause people from all races & Religions live peacfully together & this was also Zweigs ideal. I saw some of his own belongings in his house fantastico!!
  • It is very small, but the Museum earn about 2 hours of your time. Less than that would mean giving up a great experience. Portrays the life and work of the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig, who lived his last five months of his life in Brazil. Was in Petropolis which the writer has put an end to life, in death Pact with his wife. For me, in the Museum, what stands out is the narrative of the past five months of life of the author, full of human drama and existential. A modest Museum, but a must for lovers of Letters and literature. But even for those who do not nurture this passion, vele even a quick visit for some good photos that the view of the House offers. Employees are a courtesy and good will.

  • Simple Museum with few artifacts of the writer, but with a vast informative in digital formats in documentary films and for reading. The House was inhabited by Zweig has your room preserved.

  • Small and simple private museum. Great to get to know the history and life of the Austrian writer who came to Brazil on the run from the second world war. Free visitation. Stands out the giant chessboard mounted in the garden.

  • Small museum, but very well organized and with helpful staff. Panels and interactive computers make the exposure, especially to letters exchanged by Sweig with personalities of your time. Free attraction, but only open from Friday to Sunday.
