Museu Da Estrada De Ferro Madeira-Mamore, Porto Velho
(1/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
The city of Porto Velho was founded around 1907, during the construction of the Madeira-Mamore railroad, and Museu Da Estrada De Ferro Madeira-Mamore commemorates this important time in regional history. The museum offers a look at the rubber boom of the first half of the 20th century, when the city’s expansion and prosperity was directly connected to the building of this important railway system. The museum is situated inside the old train station, and there are still several trains (no longer operational) on the track in front of the building. Visit the site for a valuable lesson in regional history, and a chance to take pictures of historical railway buildings and old wagons.

  • A good attraction, but with great potential untapped history, poorly maintained warehouses and abandoned, and the old locomotives and railway equipment could have historical information to demonstrate the importance of the site for the entire region, but still worth checking out, and if you can go with a little bit of time for a boat ride, which has local output.

  • Very interesting story of highway construction, involving the rubber cycle and a number of lives that its construction eliminated. The Museum is not a brochure or pamphlet posui explanatory and this need for tourists. But it is worth visiting.

  • Represents a crucial historical moment for the region and for Brazil, but does not have the necessary investments to taste the place.
