Museu do Tubarao, Fernando de Noronha

4.2
#8 of 106 in Museums in State of Pernambuco
Specialty Museum Museum
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 Museum is a very important tourist spot of the island, to the Fernando de Noronha has to know the location, has a lot of information on biodiversity of sharks near the Museum has a place you can see sharks, this region is known as Wetlands. I was impressed with the attendance of the Museum staff, all highly-trained and educated professionals, has a very good restaurant, affordable price, with a differentiated service. I nominate this site as one of the best on the island.

  • 👍👍👍👍
  • Fernando de Noronha has so many tourist attractions, but the shark Museum is, without doubt, one of the most interesting. Worth every minute. The lectures on the ocean, the wind, the Moon, the marine life, care for the surroundings and the restaurant very well managed. Fine cuisine and great service. Shaymaa and Leo van Heerden are to be congratulated for caring that demonstrate in the details.

Where to stay in Fernando de Noronha

The bad news is that, if you're on a budget, your trip to Fernando de Noronha might be starting to look a whole lot more expensive than you'd planned. Accommodations on the remote archipelago are understandably expensive, as all food and supplies have to be specially shipped in. All lodgings are on the largest island, Fernando de Noronha, which is the only one permanently inhabited in the archipelago. The majority of options consist of guesthouses and boutique hotels concentrated in the center of Vila dos Remédios, the island's town. However, look a bit farther outside of town and you can find some excellent eco-resorts and beachside accommodations.
