Museu da Lingua Portuguesa - CLOSED, Sao Paulo

Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
One of only a few museums in the whole world dedicated to a single language, Museu da Lingua Portuguesa - CLOSED is located in the renovated Estacao da Luz railway station. The busy station was chosen to house the museum because it was precisely here that many non-Portuguese speaking European and Asian immigrants got acquainted with the language for the very first time. Wander around the old station to have a look at its iconic Romanesque red-brick arches and iron pillars. Use the museum’s displays to gain a better understanding of the Portuguese language’s origins, history, and evolution over time. Though the museum’s exhibits are all in Portuguese, foreign visitors can still pick up the rhythm and flow of the language through videos, recitations, and interactive presentations.

  • All my "gringos" friends liked it and I as well
  • A really great place to visit and understand the Portuguese language. The staff is really helpful. The only downsize is that the surroundings are not that nice.
  • Um dos melhores museus de São Paulo. Curadoria atenciosa, exposições temporárias interessantes. Vale várias visitas.
  • Liked it
  • sadly burned down in late 2015, will hopefully reopen soon... it's one of it's kind
