    The House is beautiful and it is possible to get into it. But it is hardly used, could be transformed into a museum or cultural complex.

    It's unbelievable how the place where resided the Visconde de Mauá until the end of life has not even a museum about him. His life earned up to a movie, I don't understand why there is not even an exhibition to your respect in the House.

    I couldn't get in. I visited on a Friday around 10:00 in the morning and it was closed. I think the historical significance it has, it could be turned into a museum about the life and work of Visconde de Maua.

    The House itself is the attraction, there are no exhibitions. However it is interesting for anyone who has studied history and knows the importance of Baron for Brazil. In addition to being beautiful architecture.

    Serves just to look from the outside. Anything beyond that. Petropolis has other places much more interesting to visit.

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
