  • Amazing place, many things to see in spite of the distance. We stayed a long time, watched videos and discover a little more of the culture.

  • Small, but with your charm, graceful and delicate and pretty dolls. Next to the Museum of frevo. From the balcony you have several dolls leaving a theatrical air.

  • Great Museum! It was very empty. Good for us, but really pity.
  • Excellent Museum, designed by Gilberto Freyre. Should be on every tourist route and Recife. In space also does movies, movies geared toward art films.

  • When I went to the permanent exhibition was closed, which was not informed by the site. The available exhibition added anything. Maybe next time will be better.

  • Wonderful site, very nice to spend the afternoon in contact with the Northeast. The displays are very well selected and well assembled. The ambience is nice and the garden is wonderful. The cinema is very cozy and inviting. Very hard to come around and do a visit. The service is great, the customer is treated with respect and education.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
