This is by far the best museum in Curitiba. There's a little bit of everything and they are experts that can help you understand.

Housed in a lovely historic home, the museum affords information to any traveler in Curitiba. Spend time reading the descriptions so you can understand how the state of Paraná came to be.

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).
