  • The Santos Dumont House Museum also known as the "Enchanted" is located in the city of Petrópolis in the mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro. The Museum Casa de Santos Dumont is a construction of 1918. The House was built on a very steep terrain and is designed in one piece, with three floors and a terrace. The House has several objects, books, letters and furniture and entrance stair treads in form of racket, you can only access starting on the right foot. The genius of the great Inventor is present in every detail of the House.

  • No walk to Petropolis will be complete without a visit to the Casa de Santos Dumont, with objects used by the inventor that tell part of the story of one of the most important in Brazil. Staff helpful and friendly. Symbolic prices.

  • Beautiful site with a rich history and gorgeous scale replicas of Santos' creations, and the original house designed by Santos Dumont himself. The entrance fee is decent, and they offer a video (with English subtitles) that tells the true story of Mr. Dumont. This is a must-visit site for fans of aviation history. Keep in mind the stairs are steep (which is part of the original history of the house), but there is an elevator available for people who have difficulty.
  • Great a place to visit. The house is small but it presents you about the Santos Dumont simplicity and geniality.
  • the first fly! This guy was very eccentric and his house proves it! A unique way of living. Make sure you watch the video.
  • This house belonged to Santos Dumont, the Brazilian flight pioneer. It tells us a little about his life, and allows us to better understand him.
  • Really the house is interesting but this review is more about what you learn in the museum Santos Dumont was a really interesting inventor

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.
