  • The house in the corridor of Vitória is the faithful portrayal of the way of life of the Bahian bourgeoisie in the TWENTIETH century. The lovely house remained as when the owners lived there. The objects and furniture are beautiful. The space is very well cared for. It's worth a visit.

  • The Carlos Costa Pinto Museum, was inaugurated in 1969, the valuable collection was donated by the widow D. Margarida Costa Pinto, and specimens that form the deer were owned by old and traditional Bahian families, the exposed parts are originated from Bahia and Portugal of XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries. The collections of the museum are furniture in rosewood, crystals, crockery, porcelain, silverware, glasses, fans, laces, marfins, sacred images, jewels, candlesticks, tapestry, can not describe the richness of the collection. The entrance costs R $5.00, was not guided tour, who accompanies you in access to the rooms is a security, the cafeteria was not working. The building was reformed, before the renovation you wore pan-calcareous tufa not to scratch the floor, but, it is well cared for, has a good garden. You can take pictures without flash, your personal belongings are in a locked closet. The museum is supported by the Bahia Culture Fund. I recommend it.

  • The landscaping of the front and the museum attracted me for being very well cared for. But the access price did not please me and I preferred to admire the garden

  • A time trip in style. Fantastic furniture. Pieces of great beauty and richness plus a collection of unique Creole jewels. You will be dazzled by the riches that the "Mucambas" were dressed by the ladies. A page of rich knowledge of our history.

  • I liked very, very nice, the staff, in each space explain and take doubts about the collection that is rich from furniture, fabrics, sculptures, silverware and jewellery. Especially the Creole jewels. The shop offers books, clothing and replicas of Creole jewels.

  • Inaugurated in November 1969, the Carlos Costa Pinto Museum depicts the life of the high society of the 18th and 19th centuries. The site is a private cultural institution maintained through an agreement with the Government of the state of Bahia. The private collection of the Costa Pinto family gave rise to 23 exhibition halls of decorative art and paintings. In the collection, 3,175 pieces are divided into 12 collections: Crystal, design, miscellaneous, sculpture, engraving, imaginary, furniture, honorary orders, goldsmiths, painting, porcelain and silverware. The Gold Jewels and the section of 27 silver Balangandans compose the most precious specimens of the entire collection. The museum also has balagandã Café.
