  • I really enjoyed the Museum especially for your beautiful colonial mansion, manufactured by hand by ancient techniques and a lot of sweat and blood of slave labor. A page of history of Sorocaba which reflects very well the past Brazil's slave and a way of life much simpler than what we have currently. Until a secret passage is in the House!

  • Museum that tells the story of the first inhabitants of Sorocaba. There are exposed indigenous materials (utensils, toys and mortuary urns, materials of the Bandeirantes and still a secret Chamber at the back of the cupboard for groceries. And other interesting things.

  • The Museum is inside the (excellent) Zoo "Quinzinho de Barros", and access to both the zoo and the Museum is no longer charged. However, people looking at the cars in the streets and parking lots around are all expensive. The museum works in the former House of Baltazar Fernandes and objects are all with good information and well preserved.

Where to stay in Sorocaba

As you might expect from a city not frequented by tourists, Sorocaba's accommodations do not feature an overwhelming concentration of options in a single area. Hotels and guesthouses spread across much of the city, though you'll find a good number in the city center, roughly within the triangle formed by the Rua Sete de Setembro, Avenida Moreira Cesar, and Sorocaba River. Stay within this district for easy access to the city's attractions, including churches, colonial-era administrative buildings, and museums. For more budget-friendly prices, opt for smaller-scale hotels rather than international chains and towering skyscrapers.
