  • 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.

Hopefully, many people gave their lives for it.
