Very interesting. Consider taking a cab.

Very interesting. We spent one hour and a half there. We went there by taxi. So, we don´t know exactly where the metro station is, but as we left we saw dozens of homeless people, which can cause concern to people, although it doesn´t mean they are dangerous. I hear there are some services aimed at the homeless people nearby. We called a taxi home.

São Paulo’s Ellis Island - Wonderful place to visit
sep 2019 • Sólo
This is not only a museum. This is the place where the majority of immigrants from Europe and Japan arrived by train after disembarking from Santos at the end of nineteenth and beginning of twentieth century.
The installations renovated recently show the histories of individual immigrants, their living conditions, their difficulties and the historical context of development of São Paulo.
A wonderful place to discover these human experiences and local history.
Even if it is not very easily accessible by metro, it is worth the visit!

Immigration history
aug 2019 • Páry
1848, economic crisis in Europe, heavily unemployment, forced England to prohibit the business of slave trade in 1850, to foster migrants from Europe to the New World, as cheap labor. São Paulo created a huge program of immigration, and this migrant hostel was created in 1868. It’s a good museum, modernized with technology. A few items of the past, beautiful grounds. It lacks a program with replicas, and s store: you come and go and no souvenirs; just a few books. The Cantina deserves a pit stop. Historically, you learn a lot about the Brazilian ethnic fabric.

Something a little different in Sao Paulo, English view
apr 2019 • Sólo
This museum is in the area of Brás of São Paulo.

It is a very interesting museum detailing the history of immigration and migration throughout Brazil but specifically São Paulo.

There is numerous boards of information with pictures and relevant information, around half of which are translated into both Spanish and English. There are interactive games and videos which are only in Portuguese.

This museum was free on the Saturday I went, but is apparently usually 10 BRL, so very cheap considering. It is not far from the centre, and a 15 minute walk from the Brás metro station.

It offers a great insight into the fact that immigration was a central factor in the formative years of the state of São Paulo, I highly recommend visiting!

Original items and documentaries
mar 2019 • Sólo
This museum is located in what used to be the arrival hall for immigrants to the Sao Paulo region, both for international and Brazilian migrants. After a health checkup and formalities, the immigrants would be assigned to a job and be transported there, possibly over the Tietê river. The museum describes the details of the procedure, gives examples of where the immigrants came from (Europe, Japan), etc. There are also original items on display, such as dental and surgical instruments used at the location, items that were brought along by the immigrants, such as musical instruments, and other equipment such as large old cameras.

In a list of all museums I would probably rate this as average, but considering the topic I cannot imagine many ways to improve on the exhibition, so I gave it a higher grading. The place is a bit hard to find, in a corner of railroad lines near the Bras station. I think it may be easier to reach from the Bresser-Mooca station than from Bras.

History Preserved
sep 2018 • Páry
Brazil's immigrant history is creatively displayed with interactive exhibits, short documentaries, and artifacts used by immigrants. The grounds are immaculate; the staff polite and helpful. But I did not care for the walk from the subway station. I was watching my back the whole time. The museum sits next to a homeless shelter and is a jewel in a rough neighborhood.

Good place to learn about history
máj 2018 • Rodinné
This is a place telling the story of immigrants of all nations to Brazil. A very nice garden, very well treated, a lot of information and articles. There is a hall as well, where events are held. Immigrants can organize their events for free in this hall. On Saturdays, the museum is free of charge.

The Ellis Island of São Paulo!
apr 2018 • Rodinné
This is the place where the first immigrants were brought after landing by boat in Santos. They were "sorted out", given medical tests and documents. And then they were sent to fazendas or mines that were in dire need of manpower. The museum is in great condition. The exhibition is very rich and interesting. Like the Afro Brazilian heritage, the immigrants are an integral part of Brazil history. Not to be missed.
