Museu Casa da Hera, Vassouras

4.4
#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.

  • The Ivy House Museum is a great place, I have visited at other times, but my assessment today will be for the administration of the Museum: I was disappointed because in the middle of the holiday, 02 November, was closed (the site says that the museum works even on holidays, the 13:00 the 17:00) and the p IOR was the reason, because of a local sporting event. Has no head or tail, once on holiday tourists are in town, looking for attractions, and a local event does not affect the opening of the Museum. To whom it may concern: Administration with this attitude you are going to keep the visitors, because there's no way trust that the Museum is working, once having any event in the same city is closed. You have to review it. Is here recorded my disappointment, because the Administration close the Museum on this holiday, without a plausible reason and without any notice (on the site, for example).

  • Old Mansion provides free quick tours through the house. Free alternative to being jerked around at expensive fazendas outside town!  more »

  • 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.
