  • Spectacular House Museum, before such pageantry through works and architectural embellishments, there is a simple collection of amazing African pieces, part of the collection of the ema klabin Foundation.

  • A House-Museum in the garden that houses a valuable collection, including paintings by Chagall, Frans Post, furniture, several plays and books that belonged to entrepreneur and collector Ema Gordon Klabin. The visits are guided and allow you to meet your architectural project, the entire collection, the garden, designed by Burle Marx, and, of course, a little of the history of the Manager and his family. A nice stroll through the art, culture and history.

  • On one side of the street is the MIS (Museum of image and sound) beside the MUBE (Brazilian Museum of sculpture), crossing the street right in front is Ema Klabin Foundation, i.e. it is possible to visit three museums on a tour only. Access is not complicated, for public transport just get the 930P-toward Pine Terminal anywhere by bus from rua Augusta, on holiday he was passing every 10 min 15. \ on the Ema Klabin Museum, is a luxurious mansion, amazing, we were delighted, each comodo is a surprise. Huge Windows, high ceilings, very beautiful garden, the uniqueness of the residence is amazing. It's a great ride for any situation, to go alone, accompanied, in family, friends, couple, for hot days, cold, sunny days or nublamos.

  • 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!!
