  • Interesting aquarium about fishes of São Francisco River Basin, the biggest watershed totally inside Brazilian territory!!! You can see small to large fish species, including Surubim (over 30 kg), Dou...  more »
  • In addition to being paid, which is absurd, the disappointment is so great that you end up hating yourself for going and caught queue. The Government, at the time of posting, did all that hype that everyone went to meet "the first aquarium in the São Francisco River basin", honestly, not paying me I'll be back! Looks like it was closed up, not sure.

  • The Aquarium is very interesting. It's not too big and sits inside the Zoo. Has species of the São Francisco River.

  • Beautiful opportunity to know São Francisco River fish alive. Go at night to see the Pirarucu. The shadow theatre is very Disney of yore: beautiful woman, thin and passive, strong man and warrior, flawless.

  • It's cool the fish are very nice, but a bit small and could have more attractions.

  • The variety of specimens is a little low, but it's worth it to meet with the family, especially with children.
