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).

beautiful architecture and my favorite place are the parks around the Museum, one behind the museum more privative and small, another one in front of the museum, actually is a huge place with trees and flat floor to skate and bike pratice. Also the museum's garden is amazing!

If you like history and are familiar with Brazilian history, this museum is worth the trip. Nice inventory of paintings, documents, clothing and weapons from the time of the empire. There is also a room with examples of Brazilian insect fauna.

This museum has a historical meaning for us Brazilian because it's linked with our Republic Proclamation , that was proclaimed in a river bank near this museum that was inspired in the Versailles castle. It's also a park ,ideal place for a cycle .

The museum objects are really part of Brazilian history. It is great to be there, the architecture is amazing. The surrounding unfortunately is not aligned with the historic value of the location, it is simply not well preserved (trees, fountains, etc).
Still worth a visit.
