The state historical museum, in a mansion once owned by a baron, seems more like a home filled with beautiful antiques than a museum. Among the 14,000 objects on display, there is a grand piano, a dining-room table set with 18th-century china, an ornate 19th-century crib, and many beautiful paintings.

Only if you have plenty of leisure time, otherwise head to far better Museum of Modern Art at R da Aurora or the excellent art galleries in Recife
