Museu Da Estrada De Ferro Madeira-Mamore, Porto Velho

1.0
#4 of 7 in Museums in Porto Velho
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. Using our international travel planner, Porto Velho attractions like Museu Da Estrada De Ferro Madeira-Mamore can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    The visit is worth it just for the historical value of the Madeira-Mamoré Railway (and to take some good pictures). However, the site is abandoned and the Museum closed. Sad.

    I expected a little more, but I can't help but comment that all sites fall short. The Valley photo taken.

Where to stay in Porto Velho

As a destination with few tourists, Porto Velho does not feature an overabundance of accommodation options, though you'll find enough of a range to fit most budgets. Avenida 7 de Septiembre has quite a few economy hotels and hostels, where rock-bottom prices sometimes come with dubious quality and cleanliness. Most of the city's more upscale establishments, which range from family-run guesthouses to midsize hotel blocks, lie near one of the town's main thoroughfares, Avenida Governador Jorge Teixeira. Few options exist farther outside town, and you'll likely want access to a car in order to get around efficiently as public transport in the area can be unreliable.
