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.

    Great tour inside your House. The outdoor area is a perfect marriage with the nature. A true back to the past.

    The place is very nice and well maintained, the staff very polite, but various parts of the property are in maintenance, restricting much visitation. But worth checking out.

    20/06/2017 today knowing the city of Vassouras and I also had the privilege of meeting the House Ivy House Museum, it was great getting back to past imagining all that pomp of the festivities, magnificent chandeliers, vintage clothing etc, anyway, it was great. It should be recalled that the guides Matheus (inside) and Pieter (outside), pass all necessary information in great detail. Excellent ride.

    This is the second time I visit the city and the Museum is closed. If Carnival or if the city has any kind of event the Museum simply does not open with the allegation of lack of security. In my point of view at this time you should open by having a greater circulation of tourists wanting to meet a tremendous lack of respect for the tourism and tourists.
