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 Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Completed in 1864, this was the former summer palace of Dom Pedro II. It is one of the key sites in Petropolis.

Very cool experience exploring the imperial museum. You have to wear this hilarious slippers and slide around the palace. It's very beautiful and opulent...obviously.
Good value for money, get to side around because you cannot wear shoes in the museum. Helpful staff.
Such a beautiful place. Everything is exactly as Imperial Family left it. Really worth seeing.
No pix allowed inside, big museum, more of a 2 floor house of the emperor. Interestingly they give you shoe pads to slip into and walk, sorta slide actually to preserve the floors of the house, apparently.
Amazing museum. A perfect place to learn about the Brazil's Imperial history.
