  • Excellent paleobotanical collection belonging to the municipality of Mata-RS. It is a great option for leisure and knowledge acquisition about paleobotany and the indigenous culture Tupi, Guaraní, Umbu and Humanitá. It opens on Saturdays in the morning and afternoon and Sunday afternoons. During the holiday period it opens only during the week. It is worth visiting when you take a pass at BR 287 next to the municipality of Mata-RS. Not to mention the open-air paleobotanical Museum.
