Fishing Museum, Santos

(3.9/5 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.

  • Location is quite large, a lot of exposure to sea creatures, is worth the visit, nothing extraordinary, but interesting, spend some time and visit.

  • Yes friends, the fishing Museum of Saints is one of those places that I can tell you how Positively Amazing. I say so because at first glance, although fairly old and stately to impress construction outside (remember the building of the Museum do Imigrante in São Paulo), generates a certain distrust if it's worth it or not, but when you go forth into the Museum and its impressive huge rooms and objects in it exposed (specifically about marine life) , the charm is instantly a real bio and history that's well worth being visited and revisited many times.

  • We took a guided tour by Acacius and his participation (with very interesting information and a very didactic) really was amazing! The Museum has some very special parts and worth the visit!
