Wasn’t expecting much but this museum exceeded my expectations. The exhibit is much bigger than I expected and very informative throughout. The museum is English speaking friendly and doesn’t cost much to go in. A good way to spend a couple of hours in Santos.

As a part of any trip to Santos, the museum for Pelé is a must. Pelé = football and that = Brazil. The museum is new and describes in detail Pelé's life and achievements.
