The Museum of the São Paulo State Immigration is primarily responsible for preserving the memory of the people who arrived in Brazil in the mid- nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and that their work helped build and transform the state capital and the country.

Acting as a meeting point of different immigrant communities, the origins of the current museum date back to 1887, when it was founded the Immigrants Lodge, a place that had the duty to receive and forward to working travelers brought by the government.

One of the main sights of the city, not only the historical value, but also for its centuries-old architecture, the museum has rich attractions such as the wall on which are etched in wood over 14,000 surnames, from different corners of the globe.
