The Solar do Unhão (MAM) is a wonderful mansion with a chapel beside. Facing the Baía de Todos os Santos with its gorgeous view. But as a museum is a shame with nothing inside. The only thing that worth a visit is the wonderful staircase, a piece of wood,beautifully crafted in the middle of the main lobby. The MAM's cafe... More

but there is a jazz show every Saturday starting at 17:00. Take a taxi because it is far from parking or busstops. Young and old come to enjoy the relax atmosphere

This is one of my favorite places in town, totally chilling out kind of place, with a small coffee shop where u can sit, relax and enjoy the stunning view. You can stop by to ur way to downtown, but be careful the neighborhood isn't very safe.

Unfortunately the museum was still closed when we visited (Feb), but the jazz night they have there on Saturdays was really fun. Even had some nice vegan food to eat at one of the stalls!

The whole building is currently under construction, meaning there are no exhibitions, except for a series of paintings in the museum's main office. When open, the museum is said to be great. Check it out. If closed, enjoy food and drinks at the excellent cafe next door. Or, on Saturdays, live jazz right next to the cafe.

Sadly there is not really anything to see here as they are refurbishing the site ready for the World Cup 2014. Initially no one wanted to help or assist me and I nearly left but then luckily someone noticed I wanted help and went to fetch an English speaking guide for me. The young lady was wonderful. She was very... More

As of mid-January the museum is still closed, along with the sculpture park(or at least both were when I visited on Saturday). However the restaurant is open and is a very pleasant place to eat, especially if you get a seat with a view, and I enjoyed my food. The reason for going on a Saturday was to listen to... More

We were very much looking forward to seeing this museum. We went out there, despite our helpful hotel person telling us it was closed, because we looked on the website and there was nothing about it being closed. In fact, there was a message saying that after the holiday weekend (independence day), all activities would resume as normal. We took... More

The museum is closed for rehabilitation. The restaurant is open. Not much more to say, but I'll have to submit at least 100 characters.
