Museu do Morro da Caixa D'agua Velha, Cuiaba

Museu do Morro da Caixa D'agua Velha is a museum dedicated to the history of water conservation and beginnings of modern urban development of the city. It features a permanent exhibition of iron pipes and old records of registered users for water supply. Far more interesting than the display is the building itself: it is the city’s former water reservoir dating from 1882 build to supply more than 20,000 inhabitants with drinkable water. A Roman style aqueduct built using wooden beams, clay, and brick, the tank had the capacity to store one million liters (264,172 gallons) of water.

  • Simple but organized museum, light to visit. Interesting exhibition of the parts of the old water box. I liked the sculptures exposed. Too bad you don't have the artist's name.

  • Very interesting to know what the city's water system was like in a past time. The location is very good and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
