Carefully created with every single and small detail having its meaning and importance. It follows the standards of Israel's and Washington's museums , which I got to know . Although smaller space and documents , do not lose anything about the impact that causes on the visitor. The distinctive point in this museum is the focus on the Jewish community... More

the exposition room is not big but gathers lots of stories and information. The digital collection is very informative, there are videos, pictures, interviews, maps and texts. I spent 3 hours there! As security is strict, you will need to book your visit before going there, but it is not a problem if you can plan your trip. It's surely... More

Insipired by The Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, this small version in Curitiba offers you an unique opportunity to understand how people like us played a crucial role in this genocide and how this behavior is still present in our everyday lives. Entrance is free but needs to be scheduled in their website. Make sure to schedule a guided visit.

It is very compact, but it does communicate the gravity of the Shoah in the context of Europe of the 20th century. Greece is missing in the maps of the trains and marches to the death camps. There is not one word or picture about the thousands of Sephardic Jews who also suffered and died in this horrid war of... More

A most respectfully made and heartbreaking depiction of what the Holocaust did to the jews. Very moving and awakening.

It's a very good place to learn. It's very well organized. Just remember you have to book your visit in advance. It's much smaller than the ones we visited in DC and Berlin, but the quality is the same.

I am a fan of world war 2 topics Unfortunately when we went it was closed, they told us to go the next day and again it was closed. So as far as I know is a great place to visit but call to reserve in advance.
