Museu do Morro da Caixa D'agua Velha, Cuiaba

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.

  • This museum is located inside an old water tower in the city. The atmosphere is very cool and has the potential to be an interesting Museum. Currently has an exhibition of antique pieces of water pipe, statuettes of Saints and images of Cuiabá. There's no air conditioning, gets very hot.

  • Tourist spot of Cuiabá. Easy to find, very close to the Centre of the Capital. Always has interesting exhibitions. Recommend a visit.

  • The place yields a few good photos, but is currently abandoned and badly insulated. By night, it becomes a dangerous place. Could be better tapped.

  • Very nice place to visit, but there's not much to see, it's a fairly quick visit and sometimes the site has some exhibitions of various genres.

As a busy state capital and a major hub of commerce, Cuiaba provides a good selection of mostly mid-range hotels catering to budget visitors. Truly luxurious hotels are a rarity here, but you can choose from many decent establishments offering clean, bright rooms. Look for accommodations near downtown to stay close to the best shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
