Housed in a beautiful stately former home, this history museum is located right on the edge of the attractive historical area of Largo da Orden. Although there is no exhibit signage in English, the museum still makes for an interesting browsing experience with plenty of exhibits.
The building and grounds are very pleasant, the staff friendly and helpful and the entrance is free!

Huge collection of artifacts regarding local history. Well appointed and maintained, this free-admission museum is worth a visit that might take 1.5-3 hrs.On Sundays you can also visit the flea market located right in front of the museum. The market closes at 2:00 PM, the museum closes later.

This free entrance museum has a huge collection of paintings and historical articles. It´s also has a section about the geography of Paraná and it´s pre-historical era. It´s a great opportunity to understand more about this brazilian state. A negative point is that the museum is not prepared for portuguese non-speaking visitors (however, folders in english and spanish are provided).
