  • Santos Dumont's House has been transformed into a Museum and it is read more about him and his exploits, the Museum is with that typical city infrastructure without much refinement, caution or whatever, I have the privilege to travel frequently abroad and I am sad to see how our history is treated and told , rough environments with pictures starts and without much whimsy. I gave 4 note because I could learn a little of the life of this man and I was surprised, I say that as a Brazilian, I'm proud of this figure of our history, but the site itself needs to improve, and. ...

  • I loved back to casa de Santos Dumont. I went on a weekday and I came as soon as it opened. Was empty and the visit was very quiet. The House is small, but worth it. The admission is pretty cheap and it's a very nice ride to do as a family.

  • 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.
