A great little museum

Worth the time for rock hounds. All descriptions in Portuguese, but a wonderful exhibit all the same

If you like rocks and crystals in particular, you will enjoy this small museum dedicated to the subject. Entry is free. Walk around, take some photos of a crystal or two. The pink quartz rock wall at the back is beautiful.

Interesting that besides a geologic museum of the region, its cine location is one within the art circuit in Salvador.
