Built on the Site of an old brick works this is a truly amazing Museum. There is a wide selection of Brennand's painted and Ceramic Work tasefully displayed in several halls and externally. There are extensive grounds and a Restauraunt as well as a shop. Well worth a visit with a very inexpensive emtry charge.

This place reminded me of the old J.Paul GettyMuseum in Malibu; lot of baroque, traditional stuff. Not to everyone's taste but DEFINITELY worth seeing. His entire collection is very conservative but heavy on Dutch Brazil and very different from his artist brother, Francisco Brennand. I can see why Francisco would have been the black sheep in the family with a... More

I recommend it. It is a very pleasant place to visit. It is completely different from all I have gone to. I had my wife and seven years old with me and they loved all around.

A castle built to show a private collection of antiques peaces of arts, furniture and guns. Worth the TKT. You must go by car. If you get a taxi, be sure to have it waiting for you to come back because the castle is far from public transportation.

I can't believe that people actually enjoyed visiting this place! Obviously owned by someone with more money than taste, it is like wandering around the gift shops of Europe's fine museums with copies of The David, Boteros etc. The coffee shop was ok. Save the money you will spend on a taxi to get there and back and do something... More

Beautiful place and a great art collection. The arms collection is probably one of the largest in the world.

It is a very okay place to spend your day if you dont have anything else on your schedule. Went here with my girlfriend and a friend of hers and i was more busy entertaining them and myself..hehe. A beautiful place, but anything with art doesnt really draw my attention. Would recommend this place to those who are interested though!
