My husband and I went to the museum on a Monday morning and enjoyed the temporary exhibition. There were paintings done by a bailarina and that was her first exhibition ever. The museum itself we considered small. There is a beautiful room about Orixas with long wooden sculptures, must see.

This is a typical museum about slavery and its roots. The best part of this one way museum is the last room. In the back room are the cravings of one of the most famous sculptures of his time. The 16 twenty foot plank cravings of the African religion are wonderful.
