  • The Museum is very interesting, there is much history and objects of African culture. It is a place not to be missed.

  • I went to the museum given that the subject was on the "first Brazilians" (indigenous inhabitants before colonization). Mostly it was just blown up pictures of colonial drawings on this subject matter...  more »
  • Exploring the historic former capital of Brazil to visit this museum. It is located in a beautiful building of the University. For a small fee you can get acquainted with the history and culture of Brazil.

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.
