The museum also has part of the 130th anniversary of Italian immigration in Santa Catarina - that colonization was responsible for the final deployment of the culture of grapes and wine in the state - and also highlights the trajectory of German immigrants, French and Swiss, which populated the western half of Santa Catarina and made its history of viticulture. In addition to objects related to Viticulture and Immigration, visiting the museum you will find pieces of hoarding, indigenous instruments, devices and other curiosities.
