4.5
#11 of 62 in Museums in Salvador
Specialty Museum Museum
Museu Carlos Costa Pinto displays a great collection of luxury items, antiques, treasures, and artifacts collected over a lifetime by philanthropist Carlos Costa Pinto. The US colonial style mansion is the actual house where the Costa Pintos were meant to live, but never lived there, and adapted the house to the new museum function. Beautifully displayed and well-lit exhibits show an array of decorative arts, jewels, and gold. The museum also has a library and an auditorium for events and lectures.

  • 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.

  • Excellent, excellent. He did not have it among my plans but got there and walked. Carlos Costa was a merchant who in turn felt hobby of collecting objects. The collection is wonderful. The Museum is well maintained and sample has a feed back, they are not loose as it touched me see in other museums. Not allowed to take pictures there and the value of the entrance is 10 reais.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
