During the years of slavery, there was no corner in the world where slaves were being purchased and shipped off too. One such colony of Brazil and like many other countries, after slavery was abolished, many labourers chose to stay back and settle in the colony; Brazil was no exception.

The Museu Afro Brazil celebrates the lives and legacy left behind those who stayed back. What's refreshing is that this museum either aims at garnering support nor sympathy for the new immigrant. Instead, the museum's choice of exhibits paints a picture of hope and happiness, celebrating their achievements through art pieces, biographies of important black personalities.

  • Well-maintained and large collection of Afro-Brazilian history and culture. The permanent collection is vast and diverse. You can easily spend several hours touring the exhibits. Saturdays are free, so it's a great opportunity to catch some shade inside Ibirapuera Park.

  • Urgent editing needed. The clutter in this exhibition space is overwhelming. Its like they dumped the entire storage in every inch of the venue. Objects have no space to breathe nor be appreciated, nor understood in the completely illogical and uncomprehensable display that will make your stomach ill. MASP is the only essential Museum in São Paulo. The Bienal is fantastic if you catch it. MAM and MAC are tired.

  • Amazing!! must visit in São Paulo. Will give you a great insight of the origins of Brazil and the work done to end forced work (Slavery) and eradicate racism. Great place...

  • This gallery is a masterpiece - I’ve never seen such a diverse collection before. It even outdoes the African-American museum in Washington. An amazing collection of art, history, heartbreak and of course - triumph! You need at least a few hours to go through the museum in detail and most exhibits have an English explanation - brilliant!

  • If you're at Ibirapuera touristing, this is a must. It allows for a un understanding that is essential to interpret many of Brazil's social, historical and political dimensions.
