Imperial Museum, Petropolis

#1 of 16 in Museums in Petropolis
Admire the splendor of a bygone Brazilian monarchy at Imperial Museum, the former summer palace of Emperor Pedro II. See the imperial carriage and a crown of the Brazilian Empire, as well as the emperor's robes and imperial jewels. Tour ornate, well-preserved halls and rooms displaying original furniture and paintings. You will need to wear slippers over your footwear in order to preserve the polished marble floor. Afterwards, visit the gardens to view the bronze statue of the emperor and a collection of royal family photos amidst trees.

  • Was nice, clean, organized and I think that have a low fare. I really recommend to visit this museum, helps to understand better the Brazilian history. Remember that you can't take photos from the inside.
  • Well organised. Some exhibits had multi lingual signs, but most did not. You have to wear large over shoes that take a bit too get used to as you have to slide your feet along the ground like a skier.
