It’s a interesting museum to visit. It’s not THAT big as others oceanographic museums but it has some specimens of the region.

Museum is well built , but its collection is still not great. When I visited some items didn´t have information. The museum is maintained by the Unoversidade do Vale do Itajaí and has some rare and curious items . It´s a beautiful visit for sure.

I think it is a very good option to take kids (or even the adults) in a day you can't go to the beach. They are new, so there are a few missing things, but totally worth the visit.
