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.

  • The shark Museum is well Rico in information and any questions can be taken by Engs.de fishing professionals there work, as Leonardo Veras. Place is great to take amazing photos, because it has a mermaid tail sculptures and Tristan amazing. Super recommend! Don't let Noronha without knowing this place!

  • I went to my 3-year-old son apreciae. The Museum is limited to a few sculptures outside, explanatory posters about sharks, snack bar and shop selling shark-themed products. I was attracted by the fame of the tubalhau cookie. The day I was the kitchen was closed to future ds health surveillance visit. Just don't say you lost trip because my son loves a shark-shaped Cap. I bought

  • The Museum is located next to the port San Antonio. It has a garden with statues where tourists like to photograph. It is also where you buy the ride to the Navi, and if there's a talk on the project. Very good, by the way.
