About Museu Afro-brasileiro, Salvador

Identified by its pink facade, the Museu Afro-Brasileiro is an important cog in the wheel of Bahia’s history. Everything that you need to know about black culture in Brazil, right from the slave trade to the skills and trades and how it was weaved into Brazil’s culture is all depicted through over 1000 artifacts. There’s a large space dedicated to the Candomble religion delving into the various forms of their primary deity and the characteristics of each form of the deity. The displays include paintings, sculptures, tapestries, and weavings and carved wooden panels that explain the Afro-Brazilian culture that was formed as a result of the slave trade.
