  • Honestly I didn't know of this Museum and the biggest surprise was able to admire so much in an impressive collection that is worth the visit. But spend at least 3 hours at least to get to know this fantastic attraction of Balneário Piçarras-SC of the Oceanographic Museum Univali (MOVI), was created in 1987 and is among the four main collections of natural history of Brazil, and in is Latin America's largest Oceanographic. Aims to develop reference collections that represent the largest number of marine species, taxonomic and biogeographic research making and fetching represent the biodiversity of the Brazilian coast. In addition, aims to promote and expose the features of our marine biological heritage for education and to the delight of the audience that visits us, promoting the Foundation University of Vale do Itajaí. The Museum is part of the International Council of museums (ICOM) next to the museums of natural history (NATHIST), since 1994, and your curatorial system adopts the ethical and technical criteria stipulated by this Council, as the code of ethics of the ICOM (2002). Registered by the Brazilian Museums Institute (IBRAM), federal agency that regulates and guides the museological actions in the country, and considered "collection of Excellence" by the CNPq and "reference" Institution by CAPES, indicated for graduate jobs in level of post doctorate. To give you an idea, the Museum has: the largest private collection of sharks and rays in the world (9,900); the largest collection of marine turtles of South America (400 specimens); the largest collection of marine mammals of Brazil (600); the second largest collection of birds of Brazil (650) the largest collection of marine fishes of southern Brazil (7,300); the largest collection of marine invertebrates of southern Brazil (8,000 specimens); the largest collection of shells from Brazil and second of Latin America (90,000 specimens). It is worth commenting that the museums of natural history, where category fall the Oceanographic Museum, take decades to be formed, unlike the other types of museums. The great difficulty is given by the fact that your holdings are not commercial. No whales for sale or rare species of sharks in the market, which differs substantially from the historical museums of art or other specific issues where there is an established market for the acquisition of holdings. Therefore, the growth of an oceanographic collection is subject to a great deal of field (traveling great distances along the coast) associated with rare and unusual occurrences that take place over time. Generally the museums of natural history arise from a large private collection that later is institutionalized and that receives an impulse which results in the birth of a museum itself. This process takes usually between 30 and 50 years anywhere in the world and was the case of museums currently established in Brazil and particularly MOVED. The MOVE didn't escape the rule and it all started with the dream of an idealist, just five years old, Jules Marcelo Rosa Soto. Jules materialized at the Oceanographic Museum of Univali your fixing by marine life. Nato collector since got the first spoon on the waterfront, he is a dedicated researcher who now see your dream taking more and more shape. This gaúcho de Caxias do Sul comes focusing life around the Collections. "Mouse Museum" assumed, since adolescence Soto was dedicated to reading and to deepen knowledge about the marine life. "Even during high school, I lived a lot with graduate students and was a regular of the Anchieta Museum, in Porto Alegre. He admired the work of scientists Carlos de Paula Couto, and Jeter Bertoletti "(Christian, 1910/1982, was one of the greatest paleontologists of the country; Jeter Jorge Bertoletti is a biologist and museologista, founder and Director of the Museum of science and technology of PUC-RS). Since he arrived at Univali, Soto has not stopped work at the Oceanographic Museum. In principle, working to support the College of Oceanography, the idea of turning it into a museum open to the public came in 2002, with the opening of the campus of Piçarras. In 2008 began, effectively, the transformation of the headquarters building of the Museum. Of course, he was appointed curator and occupied a room on the ground floor. A stroll through the rooms still in stage of completion, it is easy to see the pride of the collector, who brings us eyes glare of satisfaction to see the dream come true. And it's not just the Oceanographic Museum: in Piçarras even, at the Cultural Center, at the entrance of the city, is another of the collections of Jules, with objects relating to world cups. The collections of the Oceanographic Museum Univali are composed essentially of marine species, including coastal environments, pelagic species, of the deep ocean and Oceanic Islands. Most of the material collected is representative of the brazilian fauna, especially in the South. Some lots collected out of Brazil were exchanged or donated by other institutions. The collections are open to experts who want to examine specimens directly in the Museum or in their respective institutions, through loans (except holótipos). We are also open to proposals for exchanges or material donations. The collections and the lab are maintained on the fourth floor of the building and the collections are separated into two sections (invertebrates and vertebrates). The collections were divided by room according to a taxonomic group and by type of storage (liquid or dry). I thank the dear confrere Romulo Porthos, who accompanied me on this tour. Only at the end was knowing that he was a journalist, he was absolutely certain it was a biologist/oceanographer, he knew about it.

  • Worth the ride, nominate for the whole family, only have to update the address on Google maps, because if you use it to reach the place, you'll stop at UNIVALE on Uruguay Street, 472-farm and the correct address is "AV. Sambaqui , Piçarras ". This error is quite large. Please hit to prevent more mistakes with other tourists.

  • I found the entry salt. I think that young children could be free to encourage parents to trips like these. Even because the money for the down payment could be acquired in the products they sell in the output that is cheap.
