    Great place to get to know the culture of Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso. There are several affordable souvenirs, as well as traditional sweets jams and liqueurs like pequi. There is also a permanent exhibition Museum in the basement of the facility sometimes receives travelling exhibitions of the State and even national. At the end of the tour it is worth visiting the local coffee shop, where they prepare a delicious chipa, but bread cheese and rice cake.
