The collection of over 3000 pieces is a good place from families with children. Guides are knowledgeable and ready to assist with information. There is a small souvenir shop but no snack bar.

  • Welcome to the museum visit, well organized with parts and history in each sector. The Cariri is a region rich in fossils of various eras and in the museum we can learn a little of the science of paleontology and get out of there with a basic knowledge.

  • Spectacular location! A dive in history!! You have to visit. Mandatory stop and from there you take the road to make the cruise trail.

  • The museum features very well-preserved fossils in the air-conditioned, in spacious surroundings. There are guides available for explanations. I think it lacks a full-size representation of Cariri's theropods. It would delight the children! The cafeteria and the little shop leave to be desired.

  • This museum is amazing! Located in the center of Santana do Cariri (Ce), city in which I lived my childhood and visit the museum was very pleasant to me remembered every little thing in this museum, unfortunately an artifact of this museum was only in my sweet memory of childhood, for he was Burning in the Rio Fire, the National Museum. But I highly recommend visiting! There's some pretty cool stuff in there.

  • The museum is well maintained, has the Paleolithic collection of animals that have lived thousands of years in the region. It has several fossil stones of the animals that inhabited the region at the time. The museum is easily lit in the city (because the city is small), in case of doubt the location the local population does not save efforts to help. The only thing left to be desired is the lack of information on the part of the museum's attendants, I realized, at least the person who answered, that she does not have pertinent information about the exposed pieces, being basic information. An investment in technical knowledge of the exposure to local attendants would be valid to convey greater credibility to the museum.
