Fishing Museum, Santos

(3.8/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Housed in an interesting historic building overlooking the Fortaleza de Barra is Fishing Museum. Home to a huge whale skeleton and the simulation of a large boat, this museum is perfect for the kids. There are other exhibits as well such as bottles filled with sand from beaches around the world and a plethora of other fish, turtles, and seabirds all stuffed or embalmed. Pack your own snacks since there is no cafeteria on site or you can have a meal at one of the nearby restaurants. Using our custom trip planner, Santos attractions like Fishing Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Very cool Museum to be visited as it is very dynamic, without tour guides to guide you for the ride entails the complete freedom to explore the various rooms with several stuffed animals, has a room that simulates a boat deck where the kids have fun at home, in the living room of the master has a surprise the part that scares most of the visitors. Free entry. Worth a visit if you're in Salem.

  • The Museum does not have many visitors, which gives a certain aspect of abandoned but everything is very well preserved. The entrance is very cheap and there are some very exciting things to see like a giant whale skeleton, several different shells you've ever seen in my life and it is possible to walk on a glass floor watching a simulation of the sea below.

  • The Museum is located in the old fishing school and only the remains of a whole whale would pay visits. But there's a lot more fun for the kids. It's worth it!
