(240+ reviews on the web)
Art Museum Museum
The oldest museum in the state of Bahia, having been founded in 1918, Bahia Art Museum is the home of approximately 5,000 works of art, many of which are of significant artistic and historical value. Allow yourself to become lost in the museum’s collection, which boasts a variety of artifacts assembled from a number of different sources. Be sure not to miss the paintings of José Teófilo de Jesus or the museum’s collection of work from the European schools of art. If you prefer architecture to art, you’re sure to be impressed by the building’s neo-colonial grandeur and colorfully tiled interior. Our Salvador family vacation planner makes visiting Bahia Art Museum and other Salvador attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
