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.

The museum is a calm and atractive spot. Too bad Tarsila do Amaral's portrait, my real reason to visit the museum,wasn't available that day.

Historical site, from the slaves time, is part of Salvador City History. Very nice view from Baia de Todos Santos. I do recommend!

Sunset sun in MAM, in the basement cafe, on the pier, it's beautiful. In MAM, be sure to visit the sculpture garden.

Another museum clopsed for renovations with little or no hope of reopening any time soon. Disappointing.
