Fishing Museum, Santos

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. 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 interesting ride on the edge of Santos. Sharks, sea lions, fish and turtles (stuffed, of course). The skeleton of the whale impresses with grandeur. There's even a catalog of sand on the beaches. Don't forget to visit the booth of the Commander (simulation of the ship) and be careful not to scare the cat hahaha .... Pass by the submarine, is pretty cool.

    This museum is part of my life. I lost count of how many times I visited, even living out of Saints. For my happiness, every time you return has new (and good!) The Museum is structured, you get new wings, hire expert guides, builds interactive spaces for the kids, reform their bathrooms ... The last visit was a great time invested. We were with a family of friends with 2 small children (I also have 2 small) and, in addition to the spectacular remains of whale with some 20 meters long and numerous stuffed animals (or stuffed), children had a class with 2 boys (biologists no doubt) that, polite and kindly explained what the curiosity of children wondered (and mine too). recommend! Tradition! Symbolic price.

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.
