  • The Museum is composed of 4 areas of interest and admission is free. The surroundings of the Museum is super nice with floral gardens is overlooking the Lagoa dos Patos. The collection of shells from the beaches of Brazil and the world is wonderful. Worth being seen. Schedule a visit for the afternoon to visit the eco museum located on the island in front because it is closed in the morning. Instructional program and relaxing.
