  • The Museum is located in a discreet House in the historical centre of São Luís. There is a clear signal that there is the Museum so it takes care not to pass straight through the entrance. The space is divided in 3 floors, on the ground floor there is a bookstore, temporary exhibitions and exhibition on vessels of Maranhão. On the upper floor there is an exhibition on handmade toys, cultural movements of the Maranhão State and indigenous art. On the third floor there is the main part of the Museum, tells the story of That, great artist that despite his physical limitations, never stopped producing. There is accessibility for wheelchair users and reform is needed in the House.

  • Nhozinho (Antony Bruno Pinto Nogueira) was an artist and blind in one eye that, amazingly, fashioned miniature handicrafts so perfect as worthy of the cultural point of view in the region. Notable miniature parts of bumba-meu-boi! A rare degenerative disease was destroying its members and yet produced wonders! He died in 1974, at the age of 70 years. Keeping the proportions, this craftsman recalls the great Aleijadinho!!!

  • Pra quem tem interesse em conhecer a cultura maranhense, a casa junta a história de toda cultura sendo retratada em 3 andares do casarão com objetos e muitas histórias dos artistas locais.
  • Visita gratuita e guiada pela história da cultura popular da ilha, com destaque para o artesão homenageado "Nhozinho". Alguns guias deixam a desejar por não explicar tudo.
  • Achei interessante !!!!
  • Local muito bonito.
