Portuguese Language Museum
The Portuguese Language Museum is located in the dowtown area of São Paulo city inside Luz Train Station. Luz Train Station is an imposing 1901 English construction. The building shows a surprising mix of the new and ancient. The modern instalations of the museum are in complete harmony with the train station´s Victorian style of architecture.
Currenttly, the Portuguese Language Museum is the only museum in the world dedicated to only one language, in this case it´s Portuguese language. Inaugurated in March of 2006, the museum has three main halls; a temporary exhibition, a permanent exhibition hall and an auditorium.
In the permanent exibition hall, you can see the history and the development of the Portuguese language; you can see what it was like in the past and the changes it underwent in Brazil. Other interesting aspects are the cultural expressions and the regional accents.
The museum also shows temporary exibitions dedicated to writers and important subjects related to the Portuguese language.
This museum is a must-see to those who live in or visit the São Paulo city. To date, almost two million people have visited our exibitions.
When you visit the museum you will find people who can help you in English, French and Spanish languages. If you are interested, you can contact us before your visit.
