Owner description: Modeled after the palace and gardens at Versailles, the gorgeous, purpose-built Museu Paulista da USP (commonly known as the Museu do Ipiranga) occupies the promontory where Brazilian independence from Portugal was peacefully, if loudly, proclaimed by Dom Pedro I in 1822. The landscaped gardens provide a refreshing respite from the surrounding urban chaos, while the ornate museum itself — affiliated with the University of São Paulo — educates visitors in the history of the city and nation via portraiture, antique vehicles, housewares and informational installations. Ticket includes entrance to the nearby Museu de Zoologia (Zoology Museum).

“Wonderful place to visit in Sao Paulo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

The Museu do Ipiranga is one of the best museums in Sao Paulo, it's all about the independence of Brazil from Portugal and it has a huge colection of arts from the Emperor Peter I and II. The gardens are also very beautiful and worth an afternoon through the meadows.

“VERY PEACEFUL PLACE TO WALK ON”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

I went with my mother to this Museum. The gardens are fabulous, and the view you have when you're getting into the museum is memorable.
The facilities are not perfect, of course. There is one male and one female bathroom only. I went on a calm day, but I can imagine how it would be like on a busy day, there.
The historic items are very good, but unfortunately there is not much, to see. A lot of the historic items were moved some place else.
But, after all... It is a very nice place to go, walk and rest. Definately a place to visit when you are in town.
