The area
Address
Neighbourhood:
Sé, which derives its name from Sé Square, is a central neighbourhood in historic São Paulo. Close by, the Law School, the Museum of the Court of Justice and the Metropolitan Cathedral offer inspiring architecture. If you are looking for cultural activities, head to Caixa Cultural and check the schedule. In the area there is a popular pedestrian street called “Rua Direita”, one of the first streets in the region, which today marks the crowded perimeter. Sé is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.

Focus on Brazilian history, very nicely presented and explained. Two floors with several rooms. There is also a very interesting explanation of the slavery time.

I've been several times and I love coming back always. It has great temporary exhibitions and an excellent collection of its own. It is also a good place to have a coffee and eat a snack.

This institute displays the collection of the founder of the bank. Valuable documents and coins and medals are in display and provide a good summary of the histor of Brazil. Not as heralded as other museums this collection provides a valuable addition. It also has rotating exhibits on the lower level.

I had never visited a place that had taken so much care to receive diverse visitors. You can find Sign language translations of the contents, braille and touchable materials, signaled paths for blind people. The staff was super kind and the exhibitions very interesting. It exhibits both artistic and historic collections, Highly recommended!

This building houses a great little museum of early Brazilian history a well as some exhibition space and a nice café. Situated at the southern end of Paulista avenue, it is well worth a visit.
