Museu do Morro da Caixa D'agua Velha, Cuiaba

(3.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • As local cultural heritage, your old building, the Museum where in the past had the function of drain water for their 3 galleries of the ducts, is conserved and alone already sets up a historic cultural tourist attraction.

  • Set in well maintained property, the Museum houses pictures and engravings that elucidate the emergence and evolution of Cuiabá. Missing, however, more interactivity, as well as explore audio-visual resources. Provides quick visitation.

  • 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.
