Specialty Museum
Museu da Imigração do Estado de São Paulo is a memorial that preserves the history and heritage of immigrants in Sao Paulo State. The museum’s main building used to be old immigrant’s lodge, built in 19th century, where newly arrived European workers and their families stayed before going to the countryside. They arrived by train, and the train is still there, more than a century after. The museum displays furniture from that time, photographs documenting their daily life at that time, personal objects, and a book that records the names and details of the immigrants. There is a Navigation Room with a rotating globe showing the immigrant ships’ routes.

  • The Museum manages to unite intense documentation with playful and interactive attractions. Long-term exposure "Migrate" requires at least 1 hour in a visually interesting and exciting. Very worth it! There is no private parking but is in a cul-de-sac and 10 min from the station Bresser-Mooca.

  • I was year before last and I loved it, the energy that this place has is indicutível, you travel in the history of immigrants, knows more about every detail of that time, and has a wonderful garden on the outside, worth a visit.

  • There is an outside area very nice where you can sit on the grass with trees and flowers. Inside there are some media exhibitions regarding immigration in Brazil. Free entrance. Only downside is that there is no parking but it is a cul-de-sac so you can park on the street.
  • Design-wise great, they put a lot of effort in designing the exhibition and it turned out really well. The building is well preserved and the park is well done. I was a little disappointed by the content of the exhibition itself: First it is rather small and second it glorifies immigration in Brazil a little too much with the extensive design. I'd prefer some more realistic rooms so you can imagine the circumstances back in the days a little better.
  • The building that now hosts the museum was in fact the place where incoming immigrants stayed at their arrival in Brasil, before going to work in the fazendas of coffee. The yard is now a beautiful garden just close to the train station - today metro. An absolute experience you must do. There is a great collection of cards and documents which are also available on computer, the story of the multitude of European immigrants is the story of the single man, the single marriage, the single family and the journey he or she made to this New World. Moving and inspiring experience. Beautiful and new space setting.
  • Vale a pena viistar!
