  • This place is incredible. Established by a man and his wife who were renovating their home and discovered a slave burial ground. There was a live excavation taking place while we were there... History...  more »
  • Behind the small facade of the IPN there is much to be discovered. In fact, discovery is the word that defines the appearance of the Institute. Was in the midst of an excavation, a reform in the House of the Lord Petrucio (founder and Director of the institution), in 1996, who discovered the cemetery of the "New Black", name given to black people from Africa, who arrived in Rio de Janeiro at Cais do Valongo, already dead or sick, and who died even before they are marketed. Were buried in shallow grave, without any religious ceremony or rite, as indigent. Some bones and artifacts found can be seen at the site, which was transformed into archaeological site and cultural center. You can see the archaeological team working there. Can't beat pictures, but, on the other hand, can chat with Reinaldo, responsible for all archaeological research. Nice talk is also Antonio Carlos, who meets all with a lot of enthusiasm and a broad smile on his face. Antonio is one of the guides who performs weekly visits, promoted by IPN, in the so-called African heritage history circuit in the central region and the river port. The tour and many other activities, such as courses, workshops, exhibitions and the collection of a library, are on your disposal at the Institute of research and New Black Memory, down the street Pedro Ernesto, in Gamboa. I recommend! Super helpful staff awaits your visit Institute of Tuesdays to Fridays, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm or on Saturdays, from 11:00 to 2:00 pm. Oh! And has water and coffee, comfortable, waiting for the visitors. The IPN is the right destination for those who want to know more about the history of Rio de Janeiro, our origins, the slave trade, the memory and afro culture and its influences in our country. Set aside a little time on the agenda to meet the Institute. Is very worthwhile!

  • Crucial place to go if you want to know more about Brasilian history and African heritage. It's recommended to have a tour with Rio EnCantos Tour agency on the surroundings to get the contextualization of the site.

  • Is well little one, unfortunately they do not have a lot of money, but worth visiting because it speaks of a time very importsnte and also very cruel in our history. When you visit the site, ask them if they still have to sell the book "the flower of the Earth" it will complement your visit and will help you to understand the historical context and the size of the importance of keeping the Office running. The suffering of enslaved blacks in our country cannot be forgotten, we have a huge debt to these people and they should be remembered always, those were people who moved the economy of our country at the expense of much suffering.

  • Important site to the rescue of our history as a nation. Unfortunately you need a lot of support to work, because the Government insists on not to support this type of initiative, a shame.

  • Small museum, but very important to the rescue of the Afro-Brazilian history. Everyone should know the space to understand faces of slavery.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
