  • Very interesting museum, telling the life of the father of aviation (and a fabulous inventor). It's awsome to know all of his steps before finally building the 14 Bis. He was really a genius.  more »
  • The house where Santos Dumont actually lived for large periods of his life, is proof of his ingenuity and ahead-of-his-time way of life. A must visit place if you are in Petrópolis.  more »
  • A small house where the father of aviation lived and killed himself, a few objects in the house shows already what a genious he was, such as the stairway, the wrist watch and the hot shower  more »

  • Beautiful site with a rich history and gorgeous art, and the original architecture and furniture from Brazilian royalty. The price is decent. However, you can't take photos inside the main building.
  • Really the house is interesting but this review is more about what you learn in the museum Santos Dumont was a really interesting inventor
  • 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.
  • Lovely place
