Museu Casa De Santos Dumont - Review
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.

Museu Casa De Santos Dumont, Petropolis Reviews
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.
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.
Beautiful site with a rich history and gorgeous scale replicas of Santos' creations, and the original house designed by Santos Dumont himself. The entrance fee is decent, and they offer a video (with English subtitles) that tells the true story of Mr. Dumont. This is a must-visit site for fans of aviation history. Keep in mind the stairs are steep (which is part of the original history of the house), but there is an elevator available for people who have difficulty.
Great a place to visit. The house is small but it presents you about the Santos Dumont simplicity and geniality.
the first fly! This guy was very eccentric and his house proves it! A unique way of living. Make sure you watch the video.
