  • This House Museum is paid (10 and 5 half interia) during the week and on weekends. There is no guided tour with munitor. There is no parking close. The car has to stay on the street. Is a house style castle of Germany. This well maintained and with incrivil furniture and conserved. Have library and a fantastic dining room, photography is not allowed inside the House. For your inriquecer culture is worth knowing ... you will spend around 1 hour to return to the past in your present.

  • Lovely
  • Lugar incrível, um acervo de arte espetacular
  • Interessante para ser visitado
  • Lugar maravilhoso!!
  • Projetado pelo paisagista Burle Marx, o jardim é um charme só, assim como toda a casa! Ema Klabin amava viajar e conhecer lugares novos, então sua casa foi toda projetada e decorada tendo como referência os lugares que visitou mundo afora, como o Palácio de Sanssouci, em Potsdam, Alemanha. Além disso, entre quadros, livros raros, mobiliário antigo e objetos decorativos, há mais de 1500 obras, reunidas pela empresária ao longo de sua vida. A casa-museu fica localizada no Jardim Europa, em frente ao MIS, e pode ser visitada livremente nas sextas-feiras, das 14h às 17h, e aos sábados, das 13h às 17h. Há visitas monitoradas aos sábados de hora em hora! 😉 Vale muito a visita!!
