Museu do Tubarao, Fernando de Noronha

(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The displays of ferocious-looking jaws, spines, and photographs leave a lasting impression as you brush up on your knowledge of sharks at Museu do Tubarao. The small museum explains the characteristics and behaviors of various species--those mainly found in the waters around the archipelago--along with some more general facts about the formidable predators. The museum is located on the coast of Fernando de Noronha, and you can often catch sight of small sharks in the cove below. Nautically themed sculptures and relics complement the exhibition, as does the restaurant serving up traditional recipes. Try the “bolinho de tubalhau”, a delicious shark meat dumpling popular with the locals. With our world travel planner, Fernando de Noronha attractions like Museu do Tubarao can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • This is where you get the photo with the syrup of the Mermaid and the throne of Neptune with the tridents. Must have a beautiful sunrise at the side of the Museum has a beautiful gazebo. It's worth the climb.

  • Very cool. The Museum is small, but has several posters and bones. Next, there is a Bay, where, at low tide, you can see Sharks swimming. In addition, does not charge entry

  • Small, simple Museum and with passionate employees and understood by the subject. Worth knowing and buy something in the gift shop.
