  • Good to know the customs of the time as well as a return to our history of colonization and slavery in Brazil. Highly recommended to visit.

  • Is a museum with collection simple, but gives insight of life in 18th/19TH maranhense. Always guided visits, which is pretty good. But I can't understand a ban on taking pictures (copyright catalog?!) Because most of the collection is furniture, that would not be impaired by flash.

  • I was still a kid, I don't remember anything I've ever seen that marked my recollection. Could be further disclosed to visitors, I don't see much incentive and not comments

  • It was a history lesson, and the idea of simulating what life was like at the time of 1800 to 1900 very interesting. Recommend's tour for those who truly know the history. Thanks a lot!

Where to stay in Sao Luis

The more upmarket and characterful accommodations in Sao Luis can be found in the historical center, with atmospheric pousadas (guesthouses) and hotels in well-preserved colonial-era architecture. Head east of the Centro district to find budget hostels suitable for backpackers happy with simple lodgings, but who wish to be close to the main architectural sights. Larger, modern hotels lie along the island's northern coast, where a cluster of luxury and mid-range options offer rooms with sea views.
