Sertao Museum, Piranhas

(2.5/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • The Museum has original parts of the Sertão of the bunch of Lampião, furniture of the era, history of the city of Piranhas and religiosity focused on the waters of the São Francisco River, source of life and mysteries. The Museum preserves the original structure of the original building, as well as the inside. A beautiful and well-preserved architecture. Staff very polite and kind. Admission is 2.00 and 1.00 half real, for maintenance.

  • Small museum, but that shows the history of the city very well. Obligatory stop in the historic centre of piranhas.
