“Small but very Interesting Museum”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Didn't know anything about the author before I went. Great overview of his life with small displays about his most important works and awards. In the center of town and worth a 30-45 min look. Displays are modern and in good condition.

“Nearly brilliant”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

a great cafe location and a good main display. I guess a theatre night here would be good. The young woman in the shop should showing some interest in her job - but it eas quiet so maybe she was bored

“Nice to visit. Great location. You have to read something about Jorge Amado”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

One of the great Brazilian authors. If you like him and know about him, you will love the museum. It is very well displayed and has a nice coffeshop on the lower floor.

Reviewed March 1, 2012

I've been a fan since the movie of DOna Flor and here is every memory you could imagine. He used to hang out on the steps in the late 90's telling stories and mixing with the locals and tourists

Do read his stuff -- he was from Bahia and you'll see the building he wrote in.
