Our English-speaking guide that we just stumbled upon in the museum shared a lot of information. Very informative and entertaining, about the building itself as well as the Jesuit congregation. There are still quite a few original pieces.

Very interesting collection of church artifacts and in good condition. Second oldest organ in Brazil, this one in bad shape, with no money to restore it. Over 60 free. Not for wheelchair

This museum is a must for visitors comming to Embu. Here you will see the Sacred Art of the Jesuítas that found the city for hundred of years ago and as well as many items from the past.

It is worth a 20-30 minutes visit. The main attractions are wood sculptures of the Christ carrying the cross, in pain - dated from the 17th-18th century. The old church where the museum is located dates from 1690. Unfortunately the museum store is poor.

This is a beautiful and extraordinary collection of Catholic sacred art. It's not massif or especially extensive but it's the best representation of this type of Brazilian art I believe you can see anywhere. The nativities are the largest and most elaborate anywhere.

Thank Nigerdave
