Commitment to history
A Museum only makes sense when the people involved feel reflected and honored in some way. It must provoke questioning. Each piece of information given must result in yet another question, in a succession of events that transforms us and makes us better as human beings, citizens and professionals.
The WEG Museum was opened on September 16th, 2003 with this perspective in mind. WEG’s history, the culture of Jaraguá do Sul and the wonders of science and technology gathered in one single place, creating a space for emotion, reflection and citizenship. For WEG, founding this museum in the very same building that housed its first headquarters means strengthening the bonds with these three elements, as a return to the company’s roots, which simply means preparing to fly even higher.
In 2013, due to the 10th anniversary of the Museum, the venue went under renovation. The collection and the attractions were renovated and the place became known as WEG Museum of Science and Technology, a project that received support from the Brazilian Rouanet cultural incentive law.
In addition to the basic concepts of physics, which are key to understand electricity and magnetism, guests will have the opportunity to learn and see how some products work and how they are used in the everyday lives of cities, households and factories. They will also have a chance to learn about the 50 year-long history of WEG.
