  • Unfortunately it was closed over the holidays, we were just enjoying the façade, is right in the center of the city.

  • I was frustrated. I expected more information on energy and water story. Lose too much focus also allowing presentation groups tests inside the Museum. Very disorganized and half without an owner. I honestly don't recommend spending time there!!!

  • The Museum is a very nice space, always has some activity related to culture and the garden is beautiful. Worth a trip with family or friends for the weekend.

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.
