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.

  • Small museum, but Rico. In addition to the exhibition on ancient hydraulic parts, there's an interesting section on the history of Cuiabá mixing art in poetry, pictures and paintings. Very hot, poor ventilation. Lacking bathrooms and more informative cards

  • A square hot to do a break at lunchtime. Unfortunately I didn't have time to visit the Museum, but it's a nice place to visit in Cuiabá and is very close to other interesting attraction is the Geodesic Center of South America.

  • Couldn't be hotter than outside. Impossible to take advantage of the exposure and understand the history of the construction of Cuiabá

  • Needs more attention from the Government because the fountain is not working ... And that makes all the difference.
