Art Museum
Museu do Morro da Caixa D'agua Velha is a museum dedicated to the history of water conservation and beginnings of modern urban development of the city. It features a permanent exhibition of iron pipes and old records of registered users for water supply. Far more interesting than the display is the building itself: it is the city’s former water reservoir dating from 1882 build to supply more than 20,000 inhabitants with drinkable water. A Roman style aqueduct built using wooden beams, clay, and brick, the tank had the capacity to store one million liters (264,172 gallons) of water.

  • The Museum has nothing spectacular. In fact there as well at the entrance to a book about Mato Grosso with breathtaking images. Curiosity: have a wing with paintings exposed and which can be purchased.

  • Despite the square where is situated be degraded, the Museum is beautiful with 3 exhibitions, the most interesting is the history and houses of Cuiabá, another related to tools and water services at the time, worth the visit.

  • I like to get to know the Museum is small, with a beautiful architecture and very well maintained. We went on a Sunday morning and received by an employee at a very young age that gave us detailed and complete information on the entire history of the old water tower. Good location and good parking.

  • Excelente lugar para se passar uma tarde agradavel.
  • O lugar até que rende umas boas fotos, mas atualmente encontra-se abandonado e mal cuidado. Pela noite, ainda se torna um lugar perigoso. Poderia ser melhor aproveitado.
