Amazing place to visit and know more about Brazil's history! The view around is beautiful...a lot a green area and statues. All the carriages, clothes, jewels and pictures are incredible. You can't take pictures inside the museum.

This small palace was interesting to tour. Architecture pleasant, furnished, with a bonus of the royal jewels included in the tour. And the baby crib was amazing. Touring the palace was a great way to learn about the Brazilian royal family. The grounds were nice,...More
Beautiful palace, full of history, magnificent museum. Sometimes the do theater performance in front of the palace during night time.
The museum itself is a piece of art. The visit is an opportunity to understand the Brazilian society and the period of the Empire. Save 2-3h of your day to go there. A good advice: download the app before so you can listen to extra...More
Good insight into the 1800-1850 period and the Brazilian imperial family, helps to understand who is who... But the highlight is this: guests need to wear protective slippers, to avoid damaging the floor. And there are long corridors... Brazilian take on ice skating!

An absolute must for a traveller in Brazil. Very interesting historic building, royal interiors, Crown Jewels. We learnt so much from this visit. Petropolis is a great place, but not many tourists go there.
Visited on a Sunday in June 2017. Not overly crowded. Lots of history. Have to surrender your bag and cameras into a locker upon entering. No photos allowed. Beautiful grounds.
Beautiful building. A bit awkward wearing the slippers over your shoes (and strangely, not everybody is required to wear them). Worth the trip.
