Admire the splendor of a bygone Brazilian monarchy at Imperial Museum, the former summer palace of Emperor Pedro II. See the imperial carriage and a crown of the Brazilian Empire, as well as the emperor's robes and imperial jewels. Tour ornate, well-preserved halls and rooms displaying original furniture and paintings. You will need to wear slippers over your footwear in order to preserve the polished marble floor. Afterwards, visit the gardens to view the bronze statue of the emperor and a collection of royal family photos amidst trees. Plan my Petropolis trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

What care they have, very well preserved, the order of the sights, the use of Slipper to preserve the floor... Everything is perfect.
Ir a petrópolis e não ir até o museu é o mesmo que ir a Roma e não ver o papa. Tudo muito bem conservado e exposto de uma forma muito linda. Vale a pena pagar a entrada e visitar nosso passado. more »Going to Petrópolis and not going to the museum is the same as going to Rome and not seeing the pope. All very well preserved and exposed in a very beautiful way. It is worth paying the entrance and visiting our past.
A great day out from Rio de Janeiro Rodoviaria Novo Rio. Simply take the BRT train from Cinelandia as it takes you directly there. Coach service a/c pkus toilet facilities on board is reasonably priced takes you to Petropolis Rodoviaria where you catch bus 100 at other end of station. Will leave 5 minutes walk from Palace. You are not allowed to take pictures inside main palace plus have to wear protective one size slippers so as you shuffle on wooden floors you feel you are polishing wood along the route. Informative but sadly mostly in Portuguese with the odd english or french translation. They have to improve on this front however worth a visit as the town is very pleasent and with other options of sights and places to visit. Allow a full day to relax and enjoy most sights.
Sad place. Vivid history. Coward republicans.
