  • The Museum is well taken care of and the information is relevant. We know a little more about the formation of the region that is today the State of Maranhão. But the photo on the cover is not the Museum of Archaeology.

  • Very interesting, in the upstairs part of the indigenous Museum works. It was just unfortunate lack of tab, leaving several gaps about what is exposed.

  • The Center has exhibitions in two thematic paleontology and archaeology. In the part devoted to palentotogia if you have a little of the natural history of animals and plants that lived in the State of Maranhão in the Northeast region, with a focus on fossils of trees and animal models that are very interesting and the opportunity we had to tour by a student researcher. In the area dedicated to archeology we can observe various artifacts as well as a little of the history of the ancient people who inhabited the State as well as the indigenous ethnic groups that Act live in Maranhão. The Centre has free entry and fuica located in the historic centre.

Where to stay in Sao Luis

The more upmarket and characterful accommodations in Sao Luis can be found in the historical center, with atmospheric pousadas (guesthouses) and hotels in well-preserved colonial-era architecture. Head east of the Centro district to find budget hostels suitable for backpackers happy with simple lodgings, but who wish to be close to the main architectural sights. Larger, modern hotels lie along the island's northern coast, where a cluster of luxury and mid-range options offer rooms with sea views.
