Sertao Museum, Piranhas

(3.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Simple Museum, but speaks well about the outback and your story. The Sertão and his characters, if não.me cheat the ticket was real 2 per person.

  • The place is small but contains some of the region's history and the people who work there meet super well. The site has some parts of the history of the region, and text telling the story of the beginning of the highwaymen and the city. The entry is super cheap =)

  • The site is an old train station turned off. The building is old and completely adapted into three or four rooms that contains folders with the story of Lampião, Maria bonita and your bunch, as well as utensils, weapons and costumes made of leather used by outlaws. Access if it makes symbolic fee of 2.00 R$ and in addition to everything I described you can still take pictures in a Panel very well painted and become a bandit too for a few minutes. Very cool!

  • 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.
