  • Is a very interesting Museum as it tells the story of surfing and how it developed in saints and how the local surfers have become legends.

  • In Brazilian surfing Museum, we found some very interesting photos and planchas, but I think I need things. It's a bit empty.

  • Good place to take the family on the weekends if you happen to be in Sao Paulo
  • One room was open. Whit some plates and pictures. Google says it it modern art.. No, it's a construction site whit plates on the wall. Waste of money
  • Where to start, firstly this is not the museum of modern art, this is the museum of Brazilian houses. Secondly, despite the museum being under refurbishment, the reception decided it was justified to charge the full entry price for 1 mediocre room of artifacts. Thirdly, full entry price was also charged, despite the restaurant and surrounding gardens being reserved for a private function. I would not advise visiting this museum for at least the next 2 months until refurbishments are completed, even when the museum is completed, unless you are fluent in Portuguese, it is not worth your time as you will not find any translations for the contents of the museum.
  • Small museum located at the main Street Av. Faria Lima. The house is very charming and alocates the exhibitions (mostly two at a time), a restaurant and the shop. The restaurant is very good, it has a buffet service and because it's always crowd, you have to arrive in some advance (1hour). The shop has a nice selection of of Brazilian design, but not so many. The exhibitions are usually related to product/graphic design and bring pieces from the world. You can enjoy all those aspects but the best is enjoying the big garden backyard, sometimes occupied with exhibitions and others with classical concerts played by a small orchestra.
  • Free shows every Sunday morning at 11:00. Large beautiful garden and great art expositions. Restaurant is very good but expensive.

Where to stay in Santos

Look to the west of Avenida Dr. Washington Luiz for the greatest choice in accommodations, with the main cluster of popular places located here. Choose from chain hotels both simple and luxurious, as well as characterful, family-run pousadas tucked away on residential and commercial side streets. Move farther from the coast to find backpacker-friendly hostels and apartment rentals, ideal for those wishing to keep costs down or stay for longer periods of time.
