Vale Museum, Vila Velha
(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
A simple, well-presented history of the railways is housed in a colonial-style mansion at Vale Museum. A model locomotive and preserved wagon are the highlights of the collection. These items give are a blast from the past that speaks to the ingenuity of the original settlers and their determination to tame Brazil's wild acreage. The exhibition will take less than an hour to tour, but afterward you'll appreciate the cityscape view across the bay and the mouthwatering food offered at the museum's nearby restaurant. Or, if you prefer, a relaxing coffee hour at the coffeehouse overlooking the water. Work out when and for how long to visit Vale Museum and other Vila Velha attractions using our handy Vila Velha tour planner.

  • Pretty much the place that lies between the Bay of Vila Velha and Vitória with a very beautiful view of both.

  • The Museum is modern and has audio monitors, that is, you use a headset with a type of mp3 and, as if directing to the attractions, squeeze on the device the number of attraction and listen to a narrative about the attraction. There are also real monitors, if you prefer. I loved the ride, it was really Rico, learned a lot about some of Brazil's mining history, about the construction of the Railway Road Victory to Minas, about Indians botocudos of the region, etc. Book of 2 to 3 hours for the visit, to savor it with calm.

  • Pleasant museum in picturesque surroundings. The main drawback is accessability. Unless you have a car it is hard to find. Get a bus to Vila Velha bus station and hire a taxi to the museum which is a long walk otherwise.
