Júlio de Castilhos Museum

Julio de Castilhos Museum

Over a century of existence, the Museum of Julio Castilhos has been promoting the expression of cultural identities of the people of Rio Grande, democratizing access to knowledge and allowing critical reflection on issues related to the history of Rio Grande do Sul and Brazil.

 

On January 30, 1903 the then State President, Borges de Medeiros, signed the decree creating the first museum in Rio Grande do Sul: the State Museum - so there was a new destination to save the collection which, since 1901, had been accumulated in the halls of an Agricultural and Industrial Exposition state, in the old Redencao field.

 

That same year, Julio de Castillos, during an unsuccessful surgery to remove a tumor in his throat, passed away. Two years later, his residence was acquired by the state government and became the headquarters of the State Museum that from 1907, was renamed the Museum of Julio de Castilhos.
