  • The Geological Museum of Bahia is certainly a great contribution to culture and knowledge. The building is quite attractive, particularly in its building materials and finishes. Entrance, walls with Portuguese-style tiles and a gigantic meteorite. The rooms and display cases very well presented, also projection room. It has a large number of pieces on display: fossils, crystals and rocks (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic) some of great dimensions.. Unfortunately by mistake, in the stereoscope located in one of the rooms, the aerial photographs are not overlapped, so it is impossible to see in 3-D. Museum very crowded by students. Released entry, only requires registration in guestbook, there is lockers to store bags and backpacks, photos allowed. It is worth noting this mineral richness of Bahia.

  • The entrance to the museum is free, and there are plenty of things to see, there are rare and very beautiful rocks. It's worth the ride if you have a free time.

  • Worth to visit. More or less 1h would be enough. Also a good break to sit for a while after a long walking day. They have cool stones, well shaped sculptured etc.. also have drinking water fountain. The museum is free. This place also good to educate the kids. They have some tours for kids and students.
  • Very interesting, many different varieties of minerals to learn about there
  • Lovely, lots of rocks, minerals and gems. I'd like some more displays explaining the geology.
  • Great museum about geology. It has an interesting part about the oil history and also some fossils! Free entrance! If you go down they also have a coffee shop with movies.
  • Interesting geological museum upstairs with appealing café and cinema downstairs. Relaxed atmosphere pervades in the outdoor area beneath large old trees.
