Museu Da Estrada De Ferro Madeira-Mamore, Porto Velho

(1/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • Site workshop and 50 wood station Mamoré. It was built by the British and Americans who built the railroad. And it's not very zelada by public authorities. But you do visit tervsua. And experience a little of the history of Rondônia

  • On site there are two locomotives, a shed where installed tents of craftsmanship, a deck with visa to the river and boat trips. But is all very abandoned, mainly in relation to the locomotives. I hope that the new municipal administration give more attention to this place. Importantly, the entry is franchised for free within the railway. The boat ride out to 15 reais per person.

  • Beautiful place, free access. Old trains to take pictures. Shed with craft fair. The space itself is underutilized. Location that could be further explored by the Secretariat of tourism had interest. The Madeira River is beautiful, by this Museum, we access the boats-restaurants. With R$15,00 after completing 20 passengers, we do a tour of 40 min-1 h by the Madeira River. Worth spending a 3horinhas in place (museum + boat). I went by bus to the Central terminal and walked to the market hall that is opposite the Madeira Mamoré railroad. Indigenous handicrafts are pretty cool.
