Fodor's Review

For insight into the history of German immigration, check out the Museu da Família Colonial. The house, which was built in 1864 for the Gaertner family, some of the first settlers to the area, contains a collection of everyday objects that belonged to the city's first residents; its garden has many examples of regional flora.
