So proud to be Filipino!!! Strong sentiment felt especially after viewing artwork at Pinto. Grounds were beautiful too. Saw a young couple going around for what I assume was pre-wedding photos. Didn't stay for food but bought juice to go. Glad there's something like this...More

Beautiful paintings, lovely jewelry and furniture - in general excellent pieces from a variety of types of art. Definitely one of the cultural highlights of the visit to Salvador. There is also a small cafe to get a coffee after the tour. Highly recommended.

Amazing exhibits, my favorite was of the jewelry designed, crafted and worn by Africans. This museum also has captions written in English and Portuguese.

Fabulous museum, great collections of colonial era and slave jewelry and silverware and china displayed with care and sensitively curated. A great place to while away a few hours. Much enjoyed.

History is always interesting but again much focus on the rulers and not the regular folk. Shows furniture and accoutrements from other eras which is educational in and of itself.

Of interest to see how the Europeanised rich lived in the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries. There is also a fine selection of Bahian jewellery. Everything is very well displayed and the labelling is all in correct English for once!

Interesting collection, various aspects of colonial life illustrated in quiet, clean and comfortable surroundings. Lovely cafe in the garden, great for a mid-morning or lunchtime snack or coffee - even frequented by the locals.

I loved to see the fine arts and objects used by the Bahia’ sugar cane aristocracy ( XVII to XIX Centuries). I dislike the Museum opening hour : 2:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Too short and in the middle of the day.

If you enjoy historical homes you should visit this one. You walk through on your own with guides to point you in the right direction and it should take you 1-2 hours to get through. We enjoyed seeing some of the plantation history in this...More
