Situated right by the renovated riverside port area, Museu do Rio features displays and exhibits of the changing face of the river ecosystem, and a small collection of local Pantanal fish. Erected in 1899, this simple rectangular building once served as the city’s fish market. Today the museum/aquarium is also the center of art and culture for this entire region. The idea here is to preserve the history of the capital of Mato Grosso through photographs, crafts, works of religious art, and models depicting the development of this urban center from colonial times to the present. Make this a brief stop on your tour of the city, and drop by the popular restaurant, conveniently located inside the building.
