  • The Museum is small, that is, 1 hour is enough for the visit. Only the exhibition with the 12 panels of carved wood, the artist Carybé made in tribute to the orixás is worth a visit, the work really is very beautiful. Admission is just R $6.00 and the Museum is located right in the heart of Pelourinho.

  • The museum holds the African tradition and influence in Brazilian art and life. He currently exposes a very interesting press conference.

  • Disappointing. I could only visit the part of the ground floor where there was a temporary exhibition, on top of it, the lights were erased inside the museum. The collection, n was possible to visit because the museum was in renovations. Unprepared employees to attend to the public.

  • Beautiful exhibition, worth the visit. Especially with the wooden panel of Carybé that is wonderful. It is in the Largo Terreiro de Jesus in the Pelourinho, in the old Faculty of Medicine. Cheap ticket.

  • In this museum is a great appreciation of African culture, beyond what we already know, there is a panel with all the orishas, all done in wood, with a wealth of details, I was very happy to see the afro culture being promoted, great for students the place is well located, and the bathrooms are very clean.
