Imperial Museum - Review

The king Dom Pedro II used to live in this magnificent palace. The beautiful neo-classical building was completed in 1862, and is today one of the most visited monuments in Brazil. The building shares its spotlight with the palace gardens, which are a formal arrangement with plants from 15 different regions around the world – Australian palm, French grass, Madagascar bananas, and African pandalos.

At the museum you’ll find remnants of the Brazilian monarchs, paintings, jewels, rich furniture, musical instruments, and scientific instruments and books. These are a laid out as they used to be in the Dining Room, the State Room, the Embroidery Room, and the Music Room. The library is rich too, with 250,000 documents, some of which date back to the 13th century.

Check attraction website for details of the A Sarau imperial role-playing show. It’s quite fun!

Imperial Museum, Petropolis Reviews

  • Well curated museum. It was the emperor's summer palace and has been well maintained. Also, Petropolis is a nice town to visit.

  • Pura história, estrutura impecável, muito bem conservada. Apesar da maior parte dos móveis não serem originais, foram cuidadosos na montagem de cada ambiente. ***Atendimento na bilheteria é péssimo e para completar, não aceita cartão!

  • Splendid. The entrance ticket is very cheap, the place well maintained, easy to find and very interesting. It misses an audio- tool for the visit to know more about the history.

  • O local é lindo, por dentro e por fora. Acervo amplo, variado, bem organizado e bem conservado. Dá pra aprender muita coisa. Visita imperdível!

  • A very well maintained and conserved imperial residence. The exposition es big and it's rotating. You can take a look to the forniture, crowns, clothes and personal belongings of the last Brazilian Emperor and his family.
