I visited this Museum for some historical research on Bahia. Great price and great tour! I was especially fortunate to have Valdineia Lima as my tour guide. She provided an incredibly insightful perspective that I wouldn't have been able to get otherwise.

The interior of this building is truly beautiful and the view from its open air staircase along the shoreline must be one of the most magnificent in Salvador. What makes a visit really interesting though is the building’s original history. The knowledgeable (and free) individual...More

Beautiful historical building, but the star was the guide, who was honestly one of the most knowledgeable, interesting, and enthusiastic guides I've ever had. Well worth the visit and only 10 Reais.

My husband and I were very impressed with this museum. After signing in, we were met immediately by Adriano, an English-speaking guide. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about the roll of the Church in the lives of early Bahians. He...More
