Fodor's Review

Built in 1755, the Museu de Arqueologia e Etnologia (MAE) occupies a building that was once part of a Jesuit school. The collection here includes pieces found in excavations in the area, mostly in sambaquis—burial sites in shell-mounds built by native coastal-dwelling people. The museum also hosts temporary art exhibits.
