3.8
#2 of 20 in Museums in 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.

    It is an ancient water tank buried, which today where we can enter and view its three compartments, in arc. Are works of art. Outside has a beautiful square that serves as a lookout as well.

    The place had everything to be postcard of Cuiabá, if not for the neglect of the Town Hall. There is very interesting, the way it was done ... rustic, different, cool even. But the risk of being robbed, not worth the ride! When restoring the square for the inauguration of the Museum, since for years the same, was abandoned to their fate, she was beautiful: green grass, great lighting, has a kind of ' source ' that even worked ... very typical of certain politicians that improve things just to show up, then leave. Now??? Marginals are sitting over there, any time of the day or night, just waiting for the time to act! Weekend: DON'T RISK THEIR FAMILIES! There is no more careful oversight doesn't exist ... There is no security. NOTHING! Despite being right in the city centre, the location is half desert. Word of who lived in the region for more than a decade: not worth the ride! Unless you have security.

    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.

Where to stay in Cuiaba

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.
