Museu Nautico Da Bahia - Review

The Baia de Todos os Santos or the Bay of All Saints as it is otherwise known, is the biggest bay in Bahia and is quite the tourist spot. Complete with a light house, a fort and a nautical museum, the fort is an important landmark as it was the first fort built to protect the city of Salvador. Whether it was the Portuguese, Dutch or Spanish, the fort has passed hands depending on who’s on top. Transformed into a museum, the fort is now open to public who can wander about admiring the military architecture and the nautical museum along with some remnants of the slave trade that took place ever so often there. The museum in the lighthouse contains maps and some ancient navigational equipment along with wrecks of a few ships that were lost at sea.

Museu Nautico Da Bahia, Salvador Reviews

  • Location is beautiful. Evening time its very beautiful,the sunset,the sand, the beach, the museum, the light house. Its kinda perfect evening. Only the tickets & merchandise at the museum are little bit overpriced. Rest is ok. After your visit to the museum,you can always go to the beach & relax with a beer on a chair in the sand. I suggest a visit if you are in Salvador.

  • Small museum with a cool lighthouse. The view is beautiful.

  • A fairly dull small museum with a collection of random items. I'd say, not worth the admission fee. I may be spoiled by analogous museums in my home town Tallinn and St Petersburg, though.

  • Appealing old lighthouse and interesting maritime museum. No café although there was a sign pointing to it. Also no wifi. Excellent views all round but the long climb to the top is rewarded by long distance view obscured by netting. The museum has some good model ships and a lovely collection of ships in bottles.

  • This is a very comprehensive museum. In learning about the nautical history you are very much learning about this history of Bahia, and Salvador. There is not free Wi-Fi but it does have a small launchonete and clean bathrooms. Great views if the mouth of the bay.
