  • The guided tour in this museum is quite interesting the guide is very well prepared and knows well the local history and the pieces exhibited in the museum. However, as in most Brazilian museums the infrastructure is precarious the works are displayed without the proper care of conservation and there is little material written to be read by the visitor... The museum is worth the visit so that one can know a little more about the history of Brazil and the colonization of this region of the country.
