Vale Museum, Vila Velha

(4.5/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Beautiful location, cozy, familiar, that's well worth knowing and spend a few hours there. Its main attraction the small-scale model of the victory the mines.

  • The museums allows us to travel to times even existed, and the Museum of the Valley we refers there to the beginning goes one of the largest mining companies in the world, and for many decades, one of the most important of Brazil. Reports your history and trajectory, including technological advances that were being incorporated through time. It's a charm!

  • Great time for a late afternoon. There are always exhibitions in part destined to this, in another room can be seen miniature replica and all shipment of iron ore. Not only the children admire, adults too. Outside the building there is a Maria smoke that can be visited inside and is quite interesting. From there you have a beautiful view of the Bay of Victoria and to finish the tour goes well a coffee at the Café of the Museum, which sits in a train car or a dinner with music and the Moon smiling at you.

  • 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.
