Museu Casa da Hera, Vassouras

4.5
#2 of 9 in Things to do in Vassouras
As you walk around the 22 rooms at Museu Casa da Hera, you will see displayed countless colonial relics, including antique hand-carved furniture, silverware, and porcelain, as well as thousands of books, a collection of high fashion from international designers, and a rare Henri Herz piano. The former home of aristocratic heiress Eufrásia Teixeira Leite, the museum is evidence of the huge amount of wealth generated by coffee in 19th century Brazil. On-site guides help bring the building’s history to life, and after a tour of the ivy-clad house, you can walk around the estate, full of native flora and regional fruit trees. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Vassouras holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museu Casa da Hera and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • An unmissable place to visit, the inconvenience is the time that only opens after 12:00. Could open earlier to tourists.

  • It was closed for a few years to restore, but soon reopened, is beautiful and very well organized, the tour is excellent and brings an overview of coffee society of Vale do Paraiba. Worth visiting and knowing all the stories including your wife's owner.

  • The place is very beautiful garden surroundings and the guides are well prepared. There are many restricted spaces to visitation.

  • An incredible experience, with qualified guides and with many facts about the imperial era. The house belonged to an important historical character, Eufrasia, being also a high point for couples, because of the beauty of the garden and the "tunnel of love".

  • Place with amazing stories. Too bad they don't allow pictures. Some rooms were closed to visitation. Around the Museum, the Guide showed us the place where slaves gathered. Exciting story of Brooms, worth knowing.
