  • Interesting and pleasant place to obtain knowledge or as tourists. Open to visitation from Tuesday to Sunday. Ideal for school trips, but also caters to the general public. Mediators follow and inform visitors. The environment is wide and composed of galleries; travelling exhibitions and a permanent reflects the history of individual Northeastern. In addition to the main attractions of the Museum (exhibitions) is common to find some extra activities.

  • Pouco conteúdo
  • Ai eu ja fui pra esse lugar e Exelente
  • bom museu
  • Excelente lugar.
  • Museu ultrapassado com textos enviesados e uma exposição que não conta uma história e não apresenta uma experiência ao visitante. Caro (16 meia, 8 inteira durante a semana) mas aos domingos é grátis a entrada).
