This place is simply breathtaking. It is one of the most amazing houses in salvador and it also serves as a Museum. On the back of the property there is an azmaing coffee place. It is a good choice the spend the afternoon reading and chilling. Must see!

Palace Das Artes is more worth a visit for the outside space - beautiful garden with some works of art and an open-air café, than the museum itself. Nothing especially interesting inside the museum that every now and then does some extra exhibitions. Loved the gardens though.

In Graça, not very far from downtown, a nice tropical garden, a few Rodin sculptures, a large Art Nouveau mansion, a big Brutalist exhibition space for contemporary art and a delightful café-restaurant make a rather interesting assemblage well-worth spending a few hours.

Rodin in the garden. Inside is commentary on the people on the bus which is politically interesting. Very nice staff.

We went for the Rodin's and stayed for the food!! The Solar da Unhao chain includes another one in the Mondern Art Museum in Salvador...they are both a culinary adventure. The settings are also exquisite. The Rodin museum has a huge old colonial building which is transitioned into a very large exposition hall that looks like Frank Lloyd Wright designed... More

Located at Graça Street, this mansion has some Rodin sculptures. This museum creator is the former Director of the São Paulo Pinacoteca, Emanuel Araújo. Teamed with the Rodin Museum director in Paris to strengthen the artistic and cultural ties of Brazil and France. The opening hour, like all the Salvador museums, is very unpleasant: from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Fascinating small museum right in the heart of Graça, It has just a few Rodin statutes in its permanent collection, but I stumbled upon it while it was hosting a traveling exhibit of numerous works of art by Rodin, lent by the Rodin Museum in Paris. All the interpretive materials were in Portuguese and French, with not a word of... More
