Monteiro Lobato left a great gift to Taubaté... the museu is surrounded by a great green area, where you can play with your kids, have picnic or just relax while kids play. Great option for the weekends!!

The museum is a little house with a little library, stuff about Carnival and the autor's life and a backyard. It's inside a kind of a park where there're statues of his characters. Free entrance and, besides, visitors can catch mangos from the trees. Far...More
