  • The ticket is not expensive! The visitation is fantastic! A history lesson about the imperial family. With the right external and not internal photos.

  • Very good, because I had the opportunity to meet the Imperial museums of Portugal first, and then this turned out to be, say, simple near everything I saw in Europe, but still worth it. ...

  • Happened to be free on the day we turned up, which was great. Helpful staff. And there is an app 'Museu Imperial' which is worth downloading. It doesn't provide much more information, but it means you don't have to crowd round the info points. The slippers that they ask you to wear take a little getting used to.
  • O melhor de todos!
  • Muita História!
  • Amazing and sexy staff
  • This is the place to be visited in Petropolis. The imperial palace is well maintained and almost as it was during imperial period. Twice a week a special sound and video event is organized at 8 pm.
