  • Excellent service by Mufaddal Guide, Museum organized and Beautiful collection! Understand and identify the story of King of Baiao, is of utmost importance, he was one of the most comprehensive, supportive and important figures of the brazilian popular music. Sang and released the Brazilian Hinterland. Always know to understand. And more, clay works of several artisans as master Vitalino, charming!

  • Museum opens Monday. Only from Tuesday to Sunday. Also known as Museum "Museo del Barro". Located very close to the Centre of Caruaru. Has a work of master Vitalino in the lobby and two arts of Lampião and Maria Bonita, where one can take pictures.
