Imperial Museum, Petropolis

4.7
#1 of 13 in Museums in Petropolis
Admire the splendor of a bygone Brazilian monarchy at Imperial Museum, the former summer palace of Emperor Pedro II. See the imperial carriage and a crown of the Brazilian Empire, as well as the emperor's robes and imperial jewels. Tour ornate, well-preserved halls and rooms displaying original furniture and paintings. You will need to wear slippers over your footwear in order to preserve the polished marble floor. Afterwards, visit the gardens to view the bronze statue of the emperor and a collection of royal family photos amidst trees. Plan my Petropolis trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • I don't like flashy places and this is one of them, but remember times past. This very well organized, tell you where you can take pictures and where not.

  • Very well maintained, great. Walking the halls, rooms and other environments of the imperial Museum is impressive. See living history, and confirm the history books. I believe schoolchildren should be fascinated!

  • If you come to Petropolis, it is unmissable place to visit. It is just amazing, all the furnitures and treasures of Brazilian emperors.
  • The building has a beautiful architecture and is surrounded with a nice garden. Perfect to have a walk, sit and rest. Recommended
  • Great place to visit. There's a coffee house where you can enjoy a good time reading, talking or just appreciating the architecture.
  • A piece of Brazil's history. A great place to learn about Brazil's royal history. Highly recommend if you're visiting the country for more than it's beaches and sun.
  • Excellent museum! The collection of artifacts from the Brazilian Empire age is vast including jewelry, paintings, furniture, and clothes from the royal family. Guided tours teach you about the historical period and personal details from the royal family that you don't learn in schools.
