  • A good addition for those who met the Museum Pier of the outback. Has a similar theme and also interesting.

  • The Museum of man in the Northeast is very well equipped and easy to place. We live inside as the northeastern man living in difficult situations and shows the reality experienced by many.

  • In fact, I visited this museum there are some 20 years ago for the last time, for it was there that my late grandfather worked ... Visit there today would have sentimental value for me

  • 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).
