In a modern setting, this museum displays a remarkable natural history collection brought together by Dr Herculano Alvarenga. The palaeontology section is especially good, with many original fossils and casts illustrating the history of life, with the emphasis on South America. One fo the highlights of the collection is the skeleton of the giant carnivorous bird Paraphysornis, found near Taubaté. The zoology collection is also worth seeing. This museum is of interest both for specialists and for the general public, including children. Definitely one of the main tourist attractions in Taubaté.
