It was very nice in Olinda to see all the Carnival things. They are many different "bonecos" and they are used during Carnival.

We visited this museum while doing a tour with Masurtur. Nice small museum in the hearth of Recife. You will see a collection of giant dolls that they use during the Carnival. Most of the dolls represent famous people from music, politic, films and sports....More

Nice, but not really worth the time unless you are specifically into this kind of art. It was cool to hear a bit about how they make the dolls though.

I am sure any body visiting Olinda will not miss. A place to see the Big Bubble heads and take some souvenirs.

If you have never ever seen a boneca then may be it is worth it; otherwise they charge 10 Reais for a very small room which you can just take a peak in ... not worth it.. go to the one in Olinda

Worth the visit, to see the large amount of "Bonecos gigantes" in exposition. You can also buy your own "boneco" there.
