Learn rich and interesting history about Francisco José do Nascimento - the original Dragão do Mar as well as Fortaleza and the state of Ceará.

Safe for families and kids and close to numerous local eateries and other attractions including the Metropolitan Cathedral of Fortaleza (about a 10 min. walk).

Beautiful and iconic architecture both modern and from the colonial era.

Would recommend spending a few hours here if planning to spend time to eat or enjoy the museum, observatory, cinema and other attractions.

A must-see if visiting Fortaleza!

You can find art to appreciate and intense night life at the bars and restaurants around it. Besides having a very nice colorful architecture.

Starting from late afternoon there are plenty of activities for families. Cinemas, theatre, planetarium, art expositions.
There are always some free activities for families with kids.
During the night, this place is crazy. Tones of bars and discos.

Here....July 4, 2023....visiting with guests. Museum of Ceara Culture just randomly closed on a Tuesday. Typical in Brazil. Never know if attractions will be closed down for some 'made up' reason.i think more often than not there is an issue with any museums we visit.

The place serves as a cultural center for the City, with a Planetarium, Cinemas, Theaters, and two museums. During the day you can visit the exhibits, but at night you have a lot going on at the restaurants and bars around. The place is a bit run down, neglected by the administrations, but still a nice place to visit when you are tired of the beaches.
Be especially careful when walking around outside the center area, as this is very dangerous, populated by criminals and crack addicts. The center itself is usually safe.

Just off shopping street Rua Monsenhor Tabosa, is one of the most recognised national venues in Fortaleza and a must do while in the city. If you can spare a few hours (we couldn’t give it the time it deserves) there is a combination of art and culture accessible in a fairly compact area.

Keys sights include the Cearense Ceara Culture Memorial, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Theatre of the Sea Dragon, movie theatres, an amphitheatre and the Planetarium. Not a lot of English interpretive signs to explain some exhibits but the visuals were great.

The building itself is quite dramatic however the surrounding bars and restaurants are located in gaily-coloured patchwork like, colonial terraces that really catch the eye. Now filled with tourists and locals, it’s a charming representation from the past.

Getting from one section to the next you are bound to cross the red iron pedestrian bridge that reminded us of a railway crossing. If you turn around and gaze back where you came from you’ll experience the ‘perception effect’, which gives this walking corridor a surreal atmosphere – try waiting to get a photo without the crowds.

There are a few shops displaying and selling some original arts and craft - some have brilliant colours and textures. It’s also a place to explore and unwind with a coffee at one of their onsite cafes - we were so glad we spent some time in this city’s expose to culture but the centre deserves more time than we had.

Enjoy your experience!

It's a place for art, culture and fun. There's a Ceara Cultural Memorial, Comtemporary Art Museum, a Theater, cinema rooms and a planetary. You can check the cultural program on its website, http://www.dragaodomar.org.br. Always check the date and time of the events before visiting the complex, as sometimes it is closed. The complex is also surrounded by bars installed in old buildings, definetely a nice place to go for a drink on the evening.

Just this... insecurity place! There are a lot good and cheap restaurants, clubs and pubs, but there is "dark". You can't see policemen however you can see so many homeless asking money, drinking and "smoking". So bad place!
