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.

  • A tour that has to be done at Petropólis. Go with your phone and headset, so you have a QRCode to learn more about the attractions. Very cool. Cannot take pictures

  • The Museum is well organized and shows the culture of the imperial period. Choose go to afternoon or in periods with less tours to enjoy. There is also a lack of guards inspecting the visitations.

  • 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!
  • The only bad thing is you're not allowed to take inside pictures. And you have to use a shoe protector.
  • Nice experience. Well organized.
  • 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.
