Visiting the Rio Grande do Sul Memorial will take you on a trip back to the past. Located in the center of Porto Alegre, the state capital, the space has a rich structure, such as details in the Baroque style (which arose in Italy and is marked by the exuberance of its ornaments) and sculptures that depict themes related with immigrant families.

The Memorial was installed in the old Post Office building, built between 1910 and 1914, and landmarked in 1980 by the National Institute of Historic and Artistic Heritage (Iphan). The collection has objects, maps, photos, books, testimonials, among other items, about the main events of the state’s history.

At the end of the 1990s, the Memorial underwent a major restoration process to preserve its original characteristics. The building was fully recovered and its spaces were adapted to new museographic functions, with all the necessary infrastructure, such as air conditioning of areas intended for the Historical Archive of Rio Grande do Sul.
