    The staff are very friendly and it's very interesting to learn a little of the history of this great man. Each has a short 15 min about his history and very interesting, only the seats that are not very comfortable with the value of the ticket. But otherwise all ok

    This European-style chalets, tiny and vertically, just two steps from the central square of Petropolis, was the summer residence of the father of the Brazilian air force to which it is entitled inter alia airport in Rio. I shouldn't say that, but it was a little disappointing. Space is very limited and even furnishings, paintings and photos commemorating the life and of the epic of the Brazilian flight are minimal. All in all I don't know if it's worth it.

    It's a very different but charming with its details. The House is located on a high point of the city has a very exotic architecture the Museum has objects and some works of Santos Dumont.

    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.
