Museu da Imigração do Estado de São Paulo is a memorial that preserves the history and heritage of immigrants in Sao Paulo State. The museum’s main building used to be old immigrant’s lodge, built in 19th century, where newly arrived European workers and their families stayed before going to the countryside. They arrived by train, and the train is still there, more than a century after. The museum displays furniture from that time, photographs documenting their daily life at that time, personal objects, and a book that records the names and details of the immigrants. There is a Navigation Room with a rotating globe showing the immigrant ships’ routes.
