  • 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.

  • ok
  • Place with great potential with pretty collection, but more attention on basic infrastructure. Several light bulbs were out or correct power to illuminate the works, causing shadows. The air conditioning was turned off and the lack of Windows and ventilation makes the visit complicated because of the heat.

  • The site should be more valued. Unfortunately the people of RN is not a people who think interesting meeting and maintain a culture so beautiful which we have. Many fewer people know of the Rio Grande do Sul North culture and this museum is practically hidden, which cooperate one iota to this situation improve. I'm very disappointed with the situation of this Museum, but I wouldn't say she's startled:(

Where to stay in Natal

Looking to enjoy the best beaches and soak up the holiday atmosphere, most visitors eschew the city center when it comes to accommodations in Natal. Instead, many look to the southern beachside neighborhood of Ponta Negra, which brims with tourist resorts and the accompanying bars, restaurants, and cafes. If you want to escape the tourist route and experience the city itself, you'll find plenty of options along the beachside boulevard of Av. Presidente Cafe Filho--a stone's throw from the beach and the city center. For something much quieter, surrounded by rolling dunes and clear waters, stay on the seafront next to Parque das Dunas.
