  • The Museum of paleontology of Santana do Cariri surprises for the Organization and wealth of the acquis. Admission is free. Is in the city center. We were greeted by a young man who gave us all the explanations for the fossils found in the region of Brazil. There is a huge range of fossil plants, insects, fish, but rocks and petrified skeletons of various species of dinosaurs, which are proven to have lived in this region.

  • I was with my wife and a friend to visit in December 2016. I was amazed at the site. Very well maintained and highly interesting. The visitor is guided by young people. Recommend.

  • A little far from Juazeiro do Norte, this museum is located in Santana do Cariri. The Museum is well maintained and ready to get tabbed his doubts. Very nice replicas of the species.

  • Boa pedida para um passeio diferente. Lá você encontra muita coisa interessante a respeito da nossa região. Os fósseis são lindíssimos e os guias (crianças da região treinadas pela Urca) explicam tudo muito bem.
  • Acervo de valor inestimável!!! Entrada franca. O museu em si é simples, mas conta com guia que te acompanhar para tirar dúvidas. Vale a visita!
  • Amo esse museu espero voltar logo
  • 100% Estive lá neste último fim de semana e compensa muito!
  • Este lugar e otimo
