  • The Museum of FEB is an attachment of the Palácio Rio Negro. Is a relatively small space and doesn't have the diversity of items in the Museum's FEB in Curitiba-PR, for example, but should not be scorned for it. Has a very receptive and knowledgeable guide. Worth the visit!

  • The Museum is interesting but is with several structural problems and without maintenance. Need urgent restoration on the walls and ceiling. I believe that as several museums in Europe needs to be managed by a company that would charge tickets and do maintenance.

  • The site has a volunteer guide who is familiar to the Brazilian Expeditionary Force fighter which depicts the location with enthusiasm, wonderful choice and beautiful story depicted in the scene.

  • Very interesting to see the House that besides museo hosts Presidents so requested. On the back of the House has a collection of soldiers of Petrópolis with objects and history of World War II. Great ride! All free.

  • Excellent tour with explanations about the activities of the Brazilian armed forces in World War 2, this is all without any financial support.

  • The Museum is small (only 4 rooms), located on the bottom of the Palacio Rio Negro and has free admission (for the holidays). Has, in your small collection, items from the Brazilian Expeditionary Force (FEB), who served in combat in the 2° world war, as well as historical documents, photos and reports of war. The small collection however is rich and interesting! Worth knowing!

  • Working in a facility in the back of the Rio Negro Palace, the Museum is maintained by goodwill of sons of ex-combatants. I was met by one of the sons of the GL which provided us with a great experience, because he told us a little of the history of those who were fighting in Italy.

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.
