(240+ reviews on the web)
Art 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.

  • Lush, beautiful and an excellent family program, romantic or alone. The environment for you will bring you a peace of mind and relax. There is a cafe and the program is very worthwhile. Tourists, always good to go to Uber or 99 cab, since the free sucks for parking and few streets for parking.

  • Loved this place! Free entrance and the building it's very beautiful!
  • Super building housing lots of fine arts from the colonial era in particular. Free entry and there is a small shop with some excellent art books.
  • The museum itself is not the big thing. Some of the objects exhibited already had seen them in the Museum of Carlos Costa Pinto where there is a wonderful and beautifully preserved collection. For this reason I do not hit too. Fortunately I was lucky to see the sample of the Alba Vasconcelos photographer and it was worth the visit. Admission is free and the hours are from 13 to 19.

  • Fantastic! The collection is awesome and the service and staff is captivating. We had the pleasure of having several explanations of the works of art in context with the history of Brazil.
