Shark Museum, Fernando de Noronha

#7 of 123 in Museums in State of Pernambuco
Specialty Museum · Museum
The displays of ferocious-looking jaws, spines, and photographs leave a lasting impression as you brush up on your knowledge of sharks at Shark Museum. The small museum explains the characteristics and behaviors of various species--those mainly found in the waters around the archipelago--along with some more general facts about the formidable predators. The museum is located on the coast of Fernando de Noronha, and you can often catch sight of small sharks in the cove below. Nautically themed sculptures and relics complement the exhibition, as does the restaurant serving up traditional recipes. Try the “bolinho de tubalhau”, a delicious shark meat dumpling popular with the locals.
