  • The Museum seems to have been recently restored. Although small, has a collection a Rico and varied, showing details of the life history and hinterland.

  • If you're in Piranhas-AL, be sure to visit the Museum of the outback and learn a little about the history of the Cangaço. It runs from Tuesday to Sunday. Student pays half price.

  • The museum itself is interesting, contain many items of flora and fauna, ancient instruments, pictures of the city, but despite the opening hours be until 6:00 pm, I could only go to 17:10 after much questioning, the local official did not want to meet Anyone intending to leave early and missed the opportunity to visit the site.

  • Place with a lot of story to be told, with simple elements that reveal the richness of our history. Unfortunately lack investment so that the environment can keep and improve.
