We were very much looking forward to seeing this museum. We went out there, despite our helpful hotel person telling us it was closed, because we looked on the website and there was nothing about it being closed. In fact, there was a message saying that after the holiday weekend (independence day), all activities would resume as normal. We took a taxi there and found the whole place under construction. There was a single small room open in the garden and nothing else. And no one to tell us if we just hadn't found the right room, no signs in English or Portuguese, nothing. Zero. Incredibly unhelpful for visitors.

it is well restored and nice to see how this place was used to commercial purposes and now is related to art.

The museum is a calm and atractive spot. Too bad Tarsila do Amaral's portrait, my real reason to visit the museum,wasn't available that day.

Historical site, from the slaves time, is part of Salvador City History. Very nice view from Baia de Todos Santos.

Sunset sun in MAM, in the basement cafe, on the pier, it's beautiful. In MAM, be sure to visit the sculpture garden.
