  • Old furniture and objects among which stands out the boot of a "giant" who lived in Rio Grande do Sul. Is in the city center. If you're with kids, pay attention in a part where are exposed materials that were used for torturing slaves and go right. Worth the visit because the Museum is very beautiful, the kids don't usually pay attention to the objects of torture because the point really ... Is the giant!

  • Important Museum of Porto Alegre where the history of Rio Grande do Sul is told. Should be more publicized, especially among schools and could be better preserved.

  • Besides the old building, its interior is very interesting, it found several indigenous parts of the South, as well as the room of Julio de Castilhos., a visit interesting.

  • The four stars are for the building. There are some cool historical objects here, especially from the Guarani in the Seven Missions area. As a history nut I was very excited to visit this museum but, unfortunately, it is half-abandoned, like many others in Brazil. Next to the cathedral and Marechal Deodoro Park. Free entry, so definitely worth the visit.
  • A lot of history badly presented. Some rooms are almost bare and the more interesting exhibits are in darkness. In need of someone with vision to bring it to life. Better use of space, decent lighting, a café and a shop would help.
  • Um prédio lindo carregado de história! Vale muito a pena a visita!
  • Achei muito abandonado, carente de manutenção, iluminação mal distribuída, teias de aranha embaixo da cama de Julio de Castilhos, tábuas do assoalho podres. Um dos principais vultos da história rio grandense não merece esse desrespeito e desleixo.
  • Museu com 111 anos de história" Faça uma visita individual ou guiada, mediante agendamento, para grupos e escolas. Divulgue a cultura viva de Porto Alegre "
