Fodor's Review

Offering rich insight into the history and cultural influences of Brazil's North-East, this museum's collection ranges from utensils crafted by indigenous tribes and artifacts from European colonizers, to religious items from African slaves and ceramics by artists such as Mestre Vitalino and Mestre Zê. For those interested in learning more about this region of Brazil, the Museu do Homem do Nordeste is essential.
