Museu do Café, 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 Museu do Café 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.

  • Intresting place to visit. However for non Portuguese speaking some part of the exhibition lacks English translations.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful museum tracing the history of the coffee industry in the town. Great collection of exhibits tracing the time line from when coffee was first discovered through all the stages in history of the Coffee Exchange. Excellent coffee shop with different varieties of coffee available and light snacks. The coffee shop is a must for serious coffee lovers!
  • 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.
  • Good place for good sort of diverse coffee. Rosted also in place. A most try in Santos.
