  • 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.

  • Within the BH, Zoo is a wonderful attraction. The space, your organization and cleanliness are excellent. The tour of the aquariums, the carrancas surrounded by knick-knacks with names of the towns that the river flows through, the replica da tapera, Riverside's charms and all the time gets mixed up and flies. Recommend without hesitation. Congratulations to the matenedores
