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.

  • Is a good Museum, but if there were monitors to interact with visitors and add information would be much better. Although saved, passes the impression of being abandoned.

  • Is a nice Museum, with plenty of samples of marine animals with a Whale bones that should be one of the largest in South America.

  • To kill the curiosity about the size of a whale, in that phase when the child asks "why" of it all, is a great place to show the remains of a copy. Also has the captain's cabin with the kitten, which the kids have fun, plus facts, as the model of an oil rig. It's worth it!
