4.2/5 based on 500+ 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 a fun place and with a lot of information. The place has curated the Léo van Heerden who gives lectures about the sharks Friday at Tamar. Great place for drinks and eat tubalhau cake caipiroskas. Near the point of observation of the sharks. The late afternoon they're always there. Is the Museum staff also makes photos of Mermaid and Merman. Great souvenirs!!

  • It's not the most complete but has a lot of information and pictures. You probably will in the hole of Raquel that sits just after the Museum so it's worth a stop.
