This was one of the highlights to my visit to Recife, At every corner there is something amazing to look at. The atmosphere is so casual and non-stuffy. It was like being in a surreal world! Truly a pleasure!

It's one of the best place to see for artistic trip in Recife. Instaliations are very succesful. It is little bit far from the city. I took the cab to go there but i could not find any cab there to back to city. So i walked to the city nearly 3 km. It takes to half of the day... More

if in Recife, this is a must see. Francisco Brennand sculptures and craftwork are interesting and not traditional.

Great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Beautiful art displayed indoors and outside as well. Make sure to stop by the gift shop and grab a cup of coffee.

Francisco Brennand started out sixty years ago painting, but secretly wanting to do ceramic art. He went to France and saw the works of Picasso which validated that ceramics was a valid art field. . .and he was on his way to creating majestic, imaginative, unique ceramic art. Francisco is still alive. . .my husband saw him well into his... More

When in Recife do not miss this highly interesting and surprising collection of ceramic statues and other works of art. The garden is impressive, do take your time walking about and enjoying it.

The museum is a ceramic factory, placed in a quiet, natural environment. There you will find the masterpieces, such are sculptures and paintings, and even a little church. The place is quite mystic, and if you get luck, you can even speak with Mr. Francisco.

I fully agree with many others reviewers about the quality and beauty of this ceramic sculptures paradise. It is a must in Recife. The problem is that it is situated on the suburbs and in the middle of a forest. It is a 3 km drive among the trees. No not even think of public transportation. You must drive o... More

I love the ceramic art from Francisco Brennand. It all looks very surreal. He's also clearly a very productive artist because the collection displayed here is huge! Some of it is displayed indoors, some of it outdoors, arranged beautifully to fit the nature that surrounds it. I was also positively surprised to see black swans there :D The only way... More
