Museu do Tubarao, Fernando de Noronha

(550+ reviews on the web)
Specialty 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.

  • Good overview about sharks. In the restaurant. Good food.
  • Hamburg gourmet show
  • Legal
  • 👍👍👍👍
  • Next to the port, a place that's worth knowing. Good food at a good price, if we take into account the default Noronha. The restaurant has a shark Museum with free entry, in addition to giving access to legal views and great for pictures. Recommend.
