  • A visita guiada nesse museu é bastante interessante a guia é muito bem preparada e conhece bem a história local e das peças exibidas no museu. Entretanto como na maioria dos museus brasileiros a infraestrutura é precária as obras encontram-se exibidas sem os devidos cuidados de conservação e há pouco material escrito para ser lido pelo visitante...o museu vale a visita para que se possa conhecer um pouco mais a história do Brasil e da colonização dessa região do país.
