  • 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.

  • I think this is one of the largest historical buildings State of Rondônia, and of course, more historical construction, since it did not work as planned. The Madeira Mamoré railroad carries a part of the history of migration and settlement of the State, as well as the greed of the political authorities which had the effect of a great massacre of workers.

  • The Museum was temporarily disabled in 2014, in your place is running a handicraft market. Outside, you can see some locomotives/freight wagons. It's sad, but true. Was the scene we found when we return to old port in order to review family, friends and the city itself. In 2014 there was an overflow of the Madeira River. The locomotives and historic parts heavier submerged. If the water level was high due to the Santo Antônio and Jirau hydroelectric dams, there is no certainty. Although we know what happened in 2014, we feel that there is unwillingness of public managers to solve this stalemate: even when the pieces smaller EFMM museological, cataloged by IPHAN, will be forgotten in the building of ADM. of EFMM, known as clock building, located on AV. sete de setembro? We were in such a place and talk as his Moses, of the Association of friends of EFMM. The building is in a lot of trouble and it seems the company winning the bid to recover the building until he gave up performing the service, since you don't have technical competence and authorization to move the parts of the wood there are Mamoré. Two years waiting for the city to do something and nothing. Meanwhile, the US has no informational or person authorized, in the area of EFMM, we refresh your memory about the thousands of workers from all corners of the world, animated by the idea of wealth or pure adrenaline "[...] They called their fates to the tragedies, epidemics, panic and violent deaths, with building the foundations of their own bodies with the numb, about which would be the rails of a pale image of capitalist society that drives and required more and more tropical products, precious metals and raw materials, which would cater the eager-American markets. " (TEIXEIRA, Marco Antonio De La Pena). Finally, I hear through relatives that are in Porto Velho, which the current Mayor seems to be willing to change the framework of abandonment in EFMM. Hopefully, many people gave their lives for it.
