Not really a museum, this place is a collection of giant carnival heads, some recogniseable to non-Brazilians, some not. It is just the one room, but that is just about big enough. You are allowed to 'hug' the Pope while you have your picture taken and who can resist a Giant Elvis head??? Not expensive and worth a half-hour visit.

The city's tur goes to Recife and Olinda stopping in many places including this one. We need to pay extra just R$ 5,00 for to go into this place. There we find most of the dolls, famous from Olinda's Carnival. There is a guide speaking in Portuguese about the dolls. Just for photos.

The "giant dolls" are very well made. It's a funny representation of many important celebrities. It deserves a visit if you are passing .
