  • An essential visit for anyone who wants to learn a little about the history of Pernambuco. The permanent exhibition begins with the dawn of civilization, with the archaeological findings of the earliest human occupations, through the indigenous civilizations and the arrival of the Europeans in Pernambuco and the influences of Afro-Brazilian culture. There are also some works of artisans of Tracunhaém and Olinda, Caruaru. After we visited the Villa of the 19th century, a beautiful property. In it, we could see a bit of intimacy of the residents, with photos, the dining room, a rich collection of porcelains, Catholic influences and a taste for music, with some musical instruments. That day we could also see an exhibition with the works made by students of the courses of painting on fabric and porcelain painting offered by the Museum. Finally, we appreciate good coffee in a coffee bus installed outside the Museum. The only caveat I do is with respect to the hours of operation on Sundays, which opens at 14:00 and closes at 17:00. Very short time for visitation. But from what I understand, it's a local custom, because other museums I wanted to visit that same day also worked in that same time.

  • Internally has components that transmit the formerly environments. It has beautiful carvings, and paintings showing a little of the history of Pernambuco. If you have a preference, a guide presents all details of each piece of the Museum. What could be better is the external environment of the Museum that, despite being quite green with trees and a beautiful garden, failed in the care of the external sculptures. Some are so damaged that are invisible in the environment and are only seen when we are near. If you do proper cleanup and improvements in the sculptures and I'm sure the environment Museum will be 5 stars. I love to meet more of our ancestors, and I'm grateful for shared information.

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.
