  • We were careful to look at the site and let us know about timetables and days of operation. Coming to the Museum, the surprise ... closed. I came to the conclusion that Maceió 's only ride on the beach! Anything that involves a cultural itinerary, a little different, it's a sacrifice to do!! People, a State so Rico in culture should enhance, support and disseminate! Has q these scripts seek tourists too, besides beaches. Upgrade their sites, leave the information available to the public is an act of respect for their own people and with annual visitors. State Government: more attention!! There is not only no Pajuçara!!!

  • After planning my 7 years old nephew ride, we arrived at the 9:15 Museum to visit the Museum and closed!? I had the desire to look at the site, schedule, exhibitions available and yet .... I left Brazil in maceió and in years and I'd like to do different activities with my nephew. Because unfortunately, the values of society do not include visits to museums, libraries, etc. So shopping, beach ... I would like to one day see the culture be appreciated in our country, that's what the population needs. Please update your sites and cover a minimum rate for maintenance of assets.

  • Unfortunately the following Museum closed for renovations (indefinitely). Luckily, there is an exhibition on the ground floor which is worth a visit, especially if you count the monitors, which explains the passion story and the art of Its Aeneas Tavares dos Santos (of those artists, whose work we need to know before he died).
