    The Museum is small but very nice. It is interesting to see how the kids were the lamps and lamps and some electrical appliances of the grandparents ' time.

    Unfortunately, I got that impression when visiting the same. It is very small and is a little careless. The ticket paid just not worth it in my opinion. The only person to be in her way. Need to change and change for good. Would not come back.

    The energy Museum has a physical space very nice and very good materials to achieve your goal: theme carry visitors to think about the history of your electricity use to this day, the amendment of the domestic customs, changes in cities and and etc. Has a very interesting thought piece for children, I think that receives many visits from schools during the week.

    Small museum, but all organized. The bottom is free top is paid a symbolic value. Worth it, is good for the children to know history, my daughter loved it.

Where to stay in Itu

Much of Itu's accommodations lie in the city center, in the form of larger, upscale hotels that provide pools, fine dining, and plenty of the amenities you'd expect from well-known chains. While these tend to feature higher prices, they offer easy access to the attractions in the city center. Budget travelers should keep an eye out for smaller family-run guesthouses and hotels scattered around the historic core. To escape the bustle of the city center, consider staying in the surrounding countryside. Though you'll need some form of transportation to get to and fro, staying in the outskirts puts you close to some of the region's numerous plantation-style homes, many of which date back to the 18th century.
