Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view. The neighbourhood also hosts assorted museums and has a strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a variety of good dining places and its own Municipal Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables, fruits and some special events. Outside the main subway stations you can experience the busy streets, but you just need to walk a few blocks to get back the residential serenity of the area.
The museum is well-organized and clean with free entrance. The exhibition covers a good range of Brazilian animals that kids and adults will enjoy, the dinosaur fossil was a blast my 7yo loved it! Just hope it was bigger.

Judging by the information in other reviews, I'm assuming that this is related to the Paulista museum as I couldn't see any other museum when there.
This museum is currently closed for renovations, but the whole area is stunning and worth visiting even without the museum.
Fast, reliable and safe. Needs to be like that in a city of 20 million people. Fantastic system with the closed doors in a glass panel between the platform and the rails, till the train stops. An additional safety measure, particularly during rush hours when people tend to push.
This charming ice cream shops sells by the weight. So you can choose as many flavors as you'd like. And trust there are more than enough. It's very delicious and great. Threat yourself to many interesting flavors.
The neighborhood of Ipiranga doesn't have many restaurants but has some addresses that are worth the visit. Nico is one of them. Calm and warm atmosphere, open kitchen, it proposes a more sophisticated Italian cuisine that escapes the normal tone of the noisy canteens of the city.
Having lunch at Grão Ipiranga is hard for those undecided. The options are in great numbers and tastes. Do watch out for card mismatches when asking for drink or coffee.
Their pizza, esfiha and cakes are also very good. Try a piece of the bem-casado cake, if you have a sweet tooth.
If you want to taste good Brazilian food for an affordable price, you should check this restaurant. They have couple locations in São Paulo. Most of them in locations that are not in the gastronomic route, but you won't be disappointed.
Try the magic chicken without bones with vinaigrette(type of salad mix of onions, tomatoes).
Beware of long cues, so...
