Sertao Museum, Piranhas

3.4
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.

  • Must-see. Is a small and inexpensive Museum, containing items of everyday life in the outback and the Sertão.

  • The Museum is quite self-explanatory. Briefly account the history of highwaymen and Piranhas, but so that we can understand. Charges a nominal fee for maintenance. Very interesting. Worth knowing.

  • It is parts and information to report the whole story of the cangaço, the Northeast, and in particular the "hero or villain" lantern.

  • Exposes very well the art and history of Sergipe, a lot of interactivity and diversity to discover and learn.

  • 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.

  • Very small, with some trivia. Worth the visit to illustrate the knowledge about the cangaço.
