Sertao Museum, Piranhas

(340+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Sertao Museum is a simple museum showcasing the hard life under the rule of the coroneis (local political masters with engrossing power), weapons used by outlaws, Brazilian cowboys and smugglers. There are photos that show the history of the region, a collection of items from Lampiao, who was a famous Brazilian bandit leader in the last century, and whose exploits turned him into a “folk hero”. There is also a replica of a plaster house used by the local people. Take a look at our Piranhas trip builder to schedule your visit to Sertao Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • By R$3,00 you can learn a bit of history. The view of the city shows the Museum and the San Francisco River in the background.

  • The Museum tells the history of highwaymen and how the movement ended, is small, but has a good infrastructure for the size of the city. If you are I recommend a visit Piranha.

  • It is a small museum with very small holdings and tells the story of the hinterland and the Sertão, including pieces taken from the place of death of Lantern. The big difference is the local guide, Simone, which gives a real history lesson and makes the little collection look like giant. A pity that I was late and couldn't enjoy more.
