  • To my surprise the Saturday is free. Building restored and very well taken care of. Officials targeted and friendly, has a very important historical component, because it worked as migrant hostel here came from 1887. Well-kept garden and very pleasant. Has a collection with multiple objects of the time. Thrilled me much to wall with last names of immigrants carved in wood, the cards (get in a gavetário very cool) and cookbooks. Barely contained emotion.

  • After retirement more than half of the exhibition ancient Arab immigrants, Japs, Italians and Spanish etc. .. were dropped. What is exposed are now portions of the hostel and objects of the time. In General comes down in Bolivian immigration and migration of Brazilians who came to Sao Paulo to try life. The essence of the Museum was taken. The building itself is well-kept and clean, safe and friendly staff, charming coffee inside the building with affordable prices. Having the option to take pictures like it was old. About the train ride, salty price for anyone with family, R$15,00 for people counting on young children.

  • The Museum was renovated with care and discretion. The exhibitions are beautiful and interesting. It's not hard to park in the surroundings. The building alone is already worth a visit. The train ride is independent, and is across. I suggest watching for the train schedules, to optimize timing and get both visit the Museum as the tour.
