Fodor's Review

A collection of more than 3,000 objects gathered from around the world by the Costa Pinto family, including furniture, crystal, silver pieces, and paintings, is on display at this museum. Included in the collection are examples of gold and silver balangandãs, chains with large silver charms in the shapes of tropical fruits and fish, which were worn by slave women around the waist.
