Just across from the beach, this is convenient place to spend a little time. The small garden has a few interesting sculptures and a pleasant diversion from the afternoon heat at the beach. The house itself is an art deco era gem.
The interior has two levels - one dedicated to temporary exhibits - some remarkable photography when i visited - and the other floor houses a permanent exhibition of works by Calixto, considered one of the major exponents of Brazilian painting from the beginning of the 20th century.
SO glad I took the time to check it out!

Although small the collection of Calixto paintings is really good. The Museum has a very nice garden cafe in the back.

They have their fixed exposition and every so many months a new one downstairs. The house is interesting to visit as its the only one left from that time. It use to border the beach!!

One of the last houses by the sea houses a small museum but also offers concerts and talks on a varieta of subjects art-related. The house itself is worth a visit and it also has lovely gardens.

While dry and not too crowded, this gallery is not how I would normally spend time in Santos. The staff is kind, somewhat bi-lingual (or even tri-lingual) and helpful. Give yourself an hour to see your fill.

We paid a visit to this Art Gallery and enjoyed the Art exhibition of black and white photos being displayed. We then had a guided tour through the house admiring the beautiful restoration and in particular the ceilings which are painted and decorated beautifully on the ground floor. A visit to the gardens is also very worthwhile with many orchids on the trees in flower.

Great to spend an hour or so, the gardens are pretty. It's fun to see the traveling exhibits & get a little history lesson as well!

This grand old beach mansion has been restored beautifully after years of neglect. Congratulations to those responsible! Of course the exhibits change but this painter is exceptional and the works showed beautifully in the space.
