  • Stay in a beautiful old Mansion in a little in the 19-century reality of the reef. One of the only museums dealing with the black history in Brazil.

  • Beautiful building with tiled façade reminiscent of the old sugar mills and the old aristocracy of Pernambuco. Has permanent collection and space for temporary exhibitions.

  • Large area. On the upper floor has a broad view of the street. For those who appreciate art, is worth a visit. Free entry.

  • Structure short of what I expected, but the exhibition of artistic objects of Nations of which the blacks were kidnapped and brought to Brazil as slaves is very good (the objects are very relevant and bring a reasonable variety).

  • A portrait of religious intolerance. Great rescue. Could improve the identification or targeting of rooms and objects exposed.

  • Wonderful experience visiting the history and contemporaneity, as there are different exhibitions and one whose visited is contemporary art.

  • Good to take the family and see some of the African culture and the sad period of slavery who flocked here in Brazil.

  • Is a wonderful, historic building, but the exhibitions fall short. Basically the space only has pictures and is barely tapped. Hardly attracts visitors. Had a very different idea of what would be talking about African culture and been disappointed.

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.
