4.0
#4 of 15 in Museums in Santos
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.

  • Pleasant surprise when visiting the Museum, all catalogued in light installations with a splendid sea view.

  • But well worth visiting. The Museum is huge and has everything in it, from sea animals until shells, Sands of different beaches and minhatura. Great ride, and already is close to Fort of Barra Grande, on the edge of the beach.

  • On the street opposite the edge, where he was a school (or barracks), a nice Museum to visit, with many and varied stuffed marine species. Details, information, trivia and a beautiful view in a well neat and clean. Has a whale skeleton that really impresses, picking up an entire room. Then, after you meet the Aquarium of Santos, enjoy and complement your "Flume" knowing this Museum!

Where to stay in Santos

Look to the west of Avenida Dr. Washington Luiz for the greatest choice in accommodations, with the main cluster of popular places located here. Choose from chain hotels both simple and luxurious, as well as characterful, family-run pousadas tucked away on residential and commercial side streets. Move farther from the coast to find backpacker-friendly hostels and apartment rentals, ideal for those wishing to keep costs down or stay for longer periods of time.
