  • A corner filled with native and exotic fish from the waters of the San Francisco, marked by all the cultural richness of one of the most important rivers in the country, so is the aquarium of the city hall. There are 22 tanks with typical species of the basin, as well as a second floor where it is possible to observe the fish on top, making the visitors feel as if they were on the riverbank.

  • The entrance of the aquarium is paid, despite being within the botanical Fundacao of Belo Horizonte that is also paid. They are very large tanks and with some species of fish from the basin of the Rio Sao Francisco and Amazonia, needs to be improved.
