Museu Afro Brasil - Review
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.

Museu Afro Brasil, Sao Paulo Reviews
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!
Over pticed. 24 R$ for entry. No major antiques on display. Not huge and not magnificient. I5 is more about abolishment of slavery in Brazil and some historical pottery and metalwork. Some old jewellery on display too. Guided tours available at specific times.
A good museum to learn about the history of Afro Brazilians. It has potential for raising more awareness about their history.
The museum tells a lot about the African and Brazilian culture and art. Easy to spend 3 or 4 hours to see everything.
So much rich history! The man at the front desk was funny and very sweet. Apparently I did something incredibly upsetting. I video recorded in a building that doesn't mention "no videotaping". I was walking through the third floor of the museum when I over heard a security guard talking about me over his radio. I continued on through the museum when I was stopped by a serious looking man who was telling me to put my go pro away. No video recording. I told him I don't speak Portuguese and that my go pro does photos too. After the uncomfortable exchange I continued to see him more often. I felt uncomfortable. I walked toward the front desk where I greeted the nice front desk man who I spoke to about video recording. He told me its ok on the third floor after we reviewed the list of rules that only mention no flash photography. The serious looking man suddenly appeared telling the front desk man no recording upstairs. So I said that's fine but no where does it say I can't record. I felt uncomfortable and upset because the dirty looks I received from the other guy were uncalled for. He looked at me like I was scum. I won't step in there again.
