Sertao Museum, Piranhas
(2.4/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • The place is small, but reflects very clearly the story of Lampião, who was murdered in the region. We got the explanation of a young clerk with a lot of content and property, explaining gently your position on consider Lamp a hero, unlike what the story ends in short to presents him as a villain.

  • The Museum shows the life of the city at the time of the Empire, when Pedro II stopped by and at the time of the cangaço, when Wagg was through the region. Pictures, objects, documents. Small but nice. Tickets at R$ and 1.00 2.00 half. It is located in part of the former train station built by order of the emperor.
