This French Alpine style summer residence of Alberto Santos Dumont, famous Brazilian inventor, balloonist and aviator, was built in 1918. He and others called the house ‘Enchanted’, after the name of the hill on which it stood. Inside, the house’s layout is highly efficient. The ground floor was a workshop and a scientific laboratory; the second floor has a mezzanine, a bedroom and bathroom; and a rooftop gazebo that served as an astronomy observatory. It was also the first house in Brazil to have running hot water for bathing. Beautifully eccentric, this is the kind of house most romantics dream of owning.

  • Interesting museum, learnt a lot about someone I knew nothing about, probably the most worthwhile of the sites in Petropolis

  • Interesting. Have to visit, but with modest expectation

  • Santos Dumon’t like Ayrton Senna gave to Brasil a very good recognition around the world!

  • It is good that they kept the unique design of Dumont's apartment intact. Definitely worth a look for a tourist. The short film on Dumont was interesting and so were the display's of some of his belongings.

  • Vale visitar. É a antiga casa de Santos Dumont! É bem interessante. It was Santos Dumont's house. Brazilians support he created the first airplane. He competes with the American brothers who suposily created the first one . It is impossible to determine who did it first. It became a museum. It is very cool. Kids will like.
