  • Very preserved Museum, with a collection not so great but that shows that all Brazilian citizens should know, shows a little more about the route of the discovery and learning fast about the indigenous culture, and downstairs visit to an old jail cell of Porto Seguro in the old days , where the guide will tell the whole story behind those huge walls, noting that the Museum is in the middle of the historic centre. Worth the visit!

  • The Museum is located in the historic city of Porto Seguro, where are also the landmark Discovery that was brought by the Portuguese and the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Pena who is the patron saint of the city. The Museum is an old town and jail, your exhibition portrays native life before the arrival of the Portuguese to Brazil, and it is possible to see many artifacts used by indigenous peoples. At the bottom of the building you can see the room used as a storehouse and jail, where were the prisoners of time, where the the trapped the time passed and reports say that was the worst chain of time and hardly survived, a survivor escaped and wrote a book recounting the tortures. On the top floor has an exposure wheel that always changes constantly, is currently telling the story of the famous catwalk of the discovery, known as passarela do álcool. ... (not being charged). A very interesting ride.

  • Really nice place, worth visiting. Pity that always appear tourists look like suckers in place, which favors the presence of people lacking financially (from various parts of Brazil). In fact, it is good to respect people.

  • Very good. Loved see some more of the story. The chain is the most interesting.

  • Visitation points are really nice and the view of almost all the points is beautiful, especially the outside reef. The recommendation is to check out the Museum and visitation of the churches, because in some situations the time is different. And I write the same for all the sights of Porto Seguro: the boring point is that everywhere has a plethora of vendors/guides (most insistent) offering tours, visits etc. Even if you refuse they remain insisting. From what I understand, it's worse in low season, because with reduced movement they can't lose the tourist who arrives.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
