Coffee Museum, Santos

4.6
#1 of 15 in Museums in Santos
Coffee is an integral part of the Brazilian economy beginning from the first Portuguese ship to the contemporary market. The Coffee Museum takes you on this caffeinated journey through Brazilian history, from colonialization to the modern-day coffee export industry. If you're a coffee lover, it is only right to visit this remarkable piece of architecture to pay homage to an export that charges your mornings and Brazil's economy. The building itself is an impressive place that showcases the brilliance of late colonial architecture in Brazil. Be sure to visit the gift shop before you leave; there you’ll find some one-of-a-kind items that celebrate the all-powerful bean.

  • The building where is located the Museum was built in the early 20TH century and is a symbol of opulence of the coffee cycle. Eclectic style. It's beautiful! The bag of coffee was responsible for the Organization and control of the coffee market in the region. Building was listed by Iphan in the year 2000. The visit can start up at 4:00 pm and the ticket is cheap. SUPER INDICO. Be careful when walking on foot in the region.

  • We went here while on a day in Santos from a cruise, having got a taxi from the port area the Coffee Museum, old town, tram and Pele Museum are all very close together. (Pele Museum has free wifi!) It...  more »
  • Visit takes just over 1 hour, telling the history of coffee, and your importance to Brazil and especially to Santos. Despite not having coffee plantations, Santos was built with sponsorship of the coffee. Great for kids, to get to know this story.

  • It is an historical site and very well conservated. It also includes a coffee shop outside the museum.
  • Sorry bolsa but the coffee i drunk there was not what i expected......you where supposed to sale the best coffe in the world......but i have to cross the street to drink a good coffee. Well! i loved the build and the history that goes with it.
  • Great coffee history museum ! It shows how the coffee culture was important and integrated into the Brazilian history. There was few coffee selections at the cafeteria in downstairs.
  • Nice place to see where it all started. Nice old building. On Saturdays it is for free! After a day at the beach, you can pass by to see and drink a nice coffee.
  • Very informative. You can learn the history in their well-designed displays; easy to follow and simply curated. Plan about 3.5 hours to tour the entire museum. Then plan another half hour to enjoy a delicious coffee in their cafe. The museum employees are friendly and few, so don't expect a tour or answers to questions. They baristas are friendly and helpful. They are proud of their coffee and are there to make sure you have a great experience. If you're visiting SP City, and aren't going to the coast for another reason, don't just drive there for this. It's not worth the drive. But if you are in the area, it's definitely worth the time. The admission is 10R$, so very affordable.
