  • My first visit to the site, for professional reasons and occurred by chance, but enjoyed the scene, that when my son was born, when he started to read the first letter and I took him to meet the giant boots and many other curiosities our historic Rio Grande do Sul. At this location, the adults and children learn and have fun at the same time.

  • Small museum worth visiting for telling much of the story of one of the icons of the RS. May be requested for increased assisted visit information about each item in the collection. How is free, can be a complement to the visit in the Metropolitan Cathedral which is around the corner!

  • But I think an amazing Museum, despite being a great-granddaughter of maragatería. Has the bed and various belongings of Julio de Castilhos. But it's scary to take children. Just for those who like history.

  • The museum itself is not particularly impressive, but the building is really nice and somewhat unique among all the surrounding high-rises. There is little to connect or contextualise the various objects, but in a way there are also some signs of care in the way the whole thing is kept.
  • 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.
  • One of the oldest museums of the city, the Júlio de Castilhos exposes parts of various local artists and is exhibit space with frequency.

  • Failed to open on time, so I had to come back later. The acquis is Rico, beautiful pieces of the revolution and pre history.
