Petrópolis Museu Imperial
The perfectly preserved former summer palace of the emperors is now home to the Museum of the History of Imperial Brazil. Its collections include a splendid sceptre, period furniture and tapestries, paintings and reconstructions of the dining room and bedrooms. In the museum you have to wear felt slippers, so as not to damage the flooring! Behind the palace, to the rear of the garden, there is a Carriage Museum in the former stables.
