(4.9/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Dinosaur, lizards, fish, scorpion, and other animal and plant fossils are displayed at Museu de Paleontologia de Santana do Cariri. The highlight of the museum are the fossils of Santanaraptor placidus, scientific name given to the young dinosaur from about 110 million years ago, which measures 1.6 m (5 ft) long by 80 cm (2 ft) high, that used to be a fast and agile predator. The collection of over 3000 pieces is a good place from families with children. Guides are knowledgeable and ready to assist with information. There is a small souvenir shop but no snack bar.

  • Being in Crato and Juazeiro do Norte/and if you become interested in geo/paleo/arquiologia visit this museum. And very interesting to do a visiting hours with a guide who will explain/show things that lay people (like me) can't decipher at first sight. Pity that many pieces were stolen and are today all over the world.

  • Nice for family tour. Knowing this paleontologico Center in a small town. But it's worth it

  • The Museum is well mounted, has important parts and guides are well trained. Is not too large, but the importance of it cannot be measured by the size.
