  • We were at the Museum and, unfortunately, found in State of disrepair. There was only one official responsible for the Administration and nobody to welcome visitors, guide the visitor or even make the local security. Audiovisual equipment, essential to obtain information about the works and installations, was inexplicably turned off. Even the air conditioning worked. Sad picture of how our country deals with your story and the art of your people.

  • I loved this visit to this Museum, very well organized, very well shown by its employees, many attentive, they love what they do, because history shows us with much enthusiasm and pride of the Earth. I was very well approved and advise to anyone visiting Christmas, be sure to go visit not only the Historical Centre as well as that Museum, and the Museum of the press of the newspaper the Republic.

  • Very rich collection. I just think it should be more publicized and a wider look at the public power. But it is very worthwhile to visit.

  • Museum located in the old bus station building, with a wonderful collection. It must be visited and revisited several times, I consider one of the best museums in the city of Natal, and look we have many. I recommend the visit, know the culture of our people.

  • All very beautiful but the public descase with the issue of air-conditioners is absurd!
