  • The Museum has a large collection of seashells and Sands, several stuffed animals, several old items used for navigation and your the biggest attraction is the skeleton of the whale (very beautiful). Everything well organized, explanatory and very educational for you is take children. The fee for visitation is 5.00 R$.

  • I have always admired the Museum building when spent ... is an imposing construction! When I finally went to visit I was pleased with what I saw: a very large theme related acquis (consisting in your most by taxidermizadas marine species) and with good interactive environments for children. A lot to be explored by an input value very fair ($ 5 in one piece). It pays to know the history of the site, which in addition to Museum is a Research Institute.
