  • The location and the area is privileged and the idea of creating a memorial with the history of the "discovery" in the region where everything happened is incredible but we lack much to be able to affirm that the Memorial the way in which it is is unmissable. The junior guides are endeavors and even fulfill their role but the explanations are given upon replicas, incidentally almost everything there are replicas and could include many original pieces to the collection to enrich the Memorial and provide a richer and more real experience. The amount charged for what they offer and the time we spend in there is very high and I leave here as an example the Instituto Ricardo Brennand in Recife where the collection is jaw-dropping (spectacular) and the same 30 reais are charged for admission. The physical structure in general is not bad despite being somewhat abandoned. The replica of the Nau de Cabral yields some good photos, and is well done but for being in time already needs reforms as well. Anyway, I believe that if they invested in a collection of real pieces of the time and restrucalized the space, we could have a fantastic Memorial, but what we have today is far from it.

  • It is worth knowing a little of the history of the discovery of our Brazil, guided tours by students from the public schools of Porto Seguro, told at the beginning of the visitation in formal Cordel, a tour worth doing!!!!!!!

  • Incredible, a trip to 1,500, Bruna was our guide and explained everything, including with various curiosities and information that textbooks go wrong. We pay R $30.00 per adult, the accompanied children do not pay. Super recommend.

  • What? About US$7.50 for a ticket whose museum has few interesting attractions? No, not again. That was the first and last time I'll be there. The ship is interesting but they could have paid more attention to details. The native Indian house on the way to the ship is amazing. How come so many indians could have shared a house like that? Well, maybe they used to sleep in hammocks on the top of one another or whatever. Pay close attention to monkeys. They are interesting and show up whenever smell some food around arriving. Other than that, the Brazilian State Government should have paid attention to tourists and better preserve what nature has given.
