Museu do Rio, Cuiaba

(2.3/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Situated right by the renovated riverside port area, Museu do Rio features displays and exhibits of the changing face of the river ecosystem, and a small collection of local Pantanal fish. Erected in 1899, this simple rectangular building once served as the city’s fish market. Today the museum/aquarium is also the center of art and culture for this entire region. The idea here is to preserve the history of the capital of Mato Grosso through photographs, crafts, works of religious art, and models depicting the development of this urban center from colonial times to the present. Make this a brief stop on your tour of the city, and drop by the popular restaurant, conveniently located inside the building. Plan your visit to Museu do Rio and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cuiaba trip generator.

  • I went for a visit without too much pretence, I was surprised by the size of the pictures, when the port was active, the boats moored, the Cuiabá River came to the wall ... ... today as low. Shows the sellers of goods in their boats .... wonderful. Everyone should go there.

  • very dangerous place, has no police around and even inside. Just visit with great class because it's dangerous and you see the time you will.

  • Ficou um bom tempo fechado, mas é uma tradição cuiabana.
  • Fraco, deixa muito a desejar em se tratando de uma região tão rica em fauna aquática.
  • Passeio com a familia lindo lugar otimo ponto turistico para quem gosta de peixes..
