I have mixed feelings about this museum. In one hand, I enjoyed their little colection and mostly, the architecture of the place. It had a magnificent set of stairs that didn't go anywhere. The view from behind the bulding made for pretty pictures too. But...More

The main part of the museum is currently under construction and can not be visited. Just a small part is opened, but it's really worth a visit. @MAM: until when the construction is going? A hint on the Google page would be helpful for tourists.

Located on All Saints Bay waterfront in the center of Salvador. Great sunset views. Most Saturday nights there is a jazz jam that begins at sunset and goes until about 9:00-9:30pm. Inexpensive entry fee for jazz. Museum entrance is free

Mid December 2016 still pretty much all rooms closed for remodeling... I would not call this a museum. Restaurant open. Pitty.
