Sertao Museum, Piranhas

3.3
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.

  • I didn't like the Museum. Small, few pieces, with the face of abandonment. Pay R $2.00 per person for entrance and we didn't have any kind of monitoring. There's not much to see, are two small small with few artifacts.

  • An old train station in the city of piranhas in the hinterland of Alagoas on the banks of the são Francisco River, is worth knowing and know a little of the history of the sertão.

  • Very good to have the story. But it's simple. With a lot of objects of the Cangaço. In addition to current matters of persons who participated in the movement. Worth the visit.

  • 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.
