Museu da Imigração do Estado de São Paulo is a memorial that preserves the history and heritage of immigrants in Sao Paulo State.

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.

    In the Immigration Museum we can understand much of our roots, where did the immigrants, their motives, to where they were in the region of Brazil. In addition d own history of the site, which was built to be a point of shelter, pousada, concentration, organization and departure of immigrants to their new workplaces. Recommend, for anyone who loves the story.

    We love to meet the Museum and be able to feel the history of immigrants that arrived. All Brazilian families should visit the Museum! Employees ' interaction with the public is great because we can do bibliographic research so we know of our ancestors-is just exciting!

    The Museum has an interesting collection about immigration in the country. Their spaces are very well mounted, standard that you don't owe anything to museums abroad. It is a nice walk and culturally enriching.

    Great tranquil place in a hectic neighborhood. Good for history buffs and for those looking for some peace and quiet

    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.

    Worth visiting. Make sure you come with a local

    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.
