Museu Afro-Brasileiro

Museu Afro-Brasileiro Review

Next to the Catedral Basílica, this palatial pink building has a collection of more than 1,100 pieces relating to the city's religious or spiritual history, including pottery, sculpture, tapestry, weavings, paintings, crafts, carvings, and photographs. There's an interesting display on the meanings of Candomblé deities, with huge carved-wood panels portraying each one. The other museums that shares the building is the Museu Arqueologia e Etnologia (Archaeology and Ethnology Museum). Both have information booklets avialable in multiple languages.
