Museu da Casa Brasileira


in Avenida Paulista, Jardins & Around

Occupying an extravagant Palladian-style villa built by a local tycoon and his wife in the 1940s, this small but charming museum is dedicated to architecture and design, and offers a hodgepodge collection of Brazilian furnishings from the 17th to the 20th centuries. There's also a cafe-restaurant with lovely outdoor seating.
