Close to the city center, Museu do Sertao is rich in regional history and showcases a collection of over 3,000 works of art. In this museum, which aims to preserve the region’s rich cultural and artistic heritage, you can see exhibits of local handcrafts, photographs, models of rural housing, home decorations, and paintings. This small yet important cultural center offers a rare view into the world of Brazil’s indigenous people and the exotic plant and animal life that once surrounded their isolated backcountry communities. Bring the whole family for an educational trip in time and an important lesson about technological developments that transformed the parched savanna of colonial days into a modern productive area of recent years.

  • It is rich with regional history and pictures from the region. It is really near the city center.  more »
  • The part I liked most was the old frontiersman's life and the story of Petrolina. We must love our history and surely only love what we know, the sertão Museum brings us this opportunity to meet you

  • We went to the Museum of the outback, but the same was in retirement. It was a shame, but the folks left the group to the beginning of the Museum. In this way, we can see some pieces.

  • Is temporarily closed for renovations. Detail since last year. So it's best to call first to see if it's working.
