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 well preserved home.

Located in Vitoria between Barra and Pelourinho, this is a gem of a museum set in a mansion displaying many of the decorative arts of both the Portuguese overloads, as well as of their black servants and slaves. Well worth seeking out, but be sure to check opening times since they are not always open.

Being rich can be pretty boring too. That's how I felt when I left this top museum with a great collection of luxury items. All of them extremely tradicional and classical, not showing the slightest interest in the upcoming modern times. That's probably also the resaon why this aristocrate family built this mansion in 1958 in a conservative northern american... More
