  • Museum represents the history of the coffee trade and as Brooms was important. Patrimonio historico and has very good tour, however has restore environments cannot visit. On the tour we met foreign history of slaves Manoel Congo and Maria Creole, important characters in the liberation of the slaves in Rio de Janeiro. Very good to know the stories, the Sr/2 master and the slaves.

  • When I visited the site was under construction, was very beautiful on the outside, however, the boy who would get people to make the visitation to the site seemed to be a robot, and he spoke very fast, almost couldn't understand and follow the information were passed on the site.

  • The Ivy House is an interesting time capsule. The 19TH century mansion, surrounded by gardens, has a rare collection that deserves to be known. The serious problem is the visitation system: groups with 10 people, restricted rooms, long wait and staff ill-prepared to deal with the public.
