  • Through its rooms you have an idea of the Bahian from another era society, objects that are found in each one of them give an idea of the opulent city which was Salvador

  • Rich Museum of works from the colonial period. Oratorios, dressers, desks too cute! Jewels of the slaves in silver and gold ladies jewellery and coral. Wonderful collections of crystals and silver. Visit 100%.

The Museum housing a collection of more than 3000 pieces (donated by widow Margaret), which portrays the opulence of the aristocracy, represented in this collection of jewelry made of gold and precious stones.

  • Impeccable collection, a trip to time and the customs of Brazil Empire, not to mention the House is wonderful. Staff very polite and helpful. Inside there is a small shop where you can purchase souvenirs, like cups and bags, personalized with the name of the Museum. Do not allow to enter with scholarships, but they provide lockers with key to save them, it's not permitted to photograph the acquis. The ticket costs $10 and pay card student half price. Is a great option for whoever is in Salvador.

  • Collection extremely well maintained, but not apparent to the visitor research, without educational project, with little information available about the works or about the solar, lighting terrible in most rooms and lack of accessibility in several aspects.

  • Very nice, but unfortunately all in the Hall of victory is very difficult for parking and access by public transport is also not the best, but still worth knowing. One Sunday a month for Oliver's presentation with music and children's activities.
