Museu Vale
About
Museu Vale, opened in October 15th 1998, is an initiative of the Vale Foundation, an institution that performs actions, projects and social programs in regions where Vale operates, in order to contribute to the territorial development and strengthen the people and communities, while respecting local cultural identities. Vale Foundation believes that investing in equipment and cultural programs is an opportunity for territorial development, as it strengthens public culture policy and promotes social inclusion - especially of children and young people. Furthermore, participation in cultural activities brings positive impacts for societies and individuals in many dimensions: develops skills and abilities, stimulates creativity, strengthens the self-esteem, stablishes values and opens new possibilities of work and income. Museu Vale is part of the commitment of Vale Foundation with the increase of the access to cultural assets, the preservation of local cultural identities and strengthening and valuing Brazilian cultural heritage and memories. With its exhibitions, seminars and art workshops, promotes contact among the diversity of style, techniques and contemporary aesthetic, encouraging many young people to join the market of artistic-cultural production.

It is a small cosy museum, worth a quick visit but the real opportunity is to kill two birds with a stone and stop there, after the visit to grab lunch or a sandwich.
Additional advantage for parents: the kid could roam freely and safely around while you eat/rest.

I visited with some family and we used the audio guides throughout the space. They were easy to use and provided additional information to the placards. The museum had excellent artefacts and they were displayed in such a way that you could really see and understand them. Museum Vale also houses the biggest model railway in Brazil and is very interesting. We enjoyed spending time it he gardens and then having coffee in their little restaurant. In their exhibition space there is different things throughout the year.

Very interesting museum about the history of morning in the region. There is yet good views to the city and the port in other side of the bay. There is yet some exibhitions in a side room with great cultural purposes. There is too a good restaurant and cafe. It worths spending one hour there.

I was surprised by the quality of this old train station now converted into a great museum with cafe in a train car in the garden.

The old train station has been remodelled and is now a museum and exhibition center, well worth visiting. There is an old train car converted into a cozy cafe I can warmly recommend!

The Muesu da Vale tells the story of the Vale corporation and the railroad which was built to carry passengers and bring minerals from inland to the port city of
Vitoria. The Museum is located in the original train station building. Highlights for rail fans include the Baldwin narrow gage steam locomotive displayed outside. It is not running, but it is very well preserved. There are some restored rail cars, and a nice little snack bar in a dining rail car. Inside the museum building are a variety of railroad artifacts, and a nicely detailed model railroad. The museum is on the waterfront, across from a busy commercial port, and some interesting ship traffic may be seen. A nearby warehouse now houses things like exhibits from visiting artists, so each visit to the museum is a little different. The outside attractions, including the locomotive, are free.

The place is so nice that I usually go there twice a year at least. If you want to relax a little bit and enjoy some art expo, come to Vale Museum. There is not much to see, I mean it's a little museum but a great place for pictures and a very good luch at the café. I do recommend the café for lunch on weekends. Save about 2 hours for this visit and come by car. Some people would like to also visit sights downtown Vitoria before or after, since it's far from hotels tourists usually stay at.
