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

Saw two very different exhibitions here and both were excellent. I like the spaces and the pieces were well displayed and interpreted. Nice cafe next doo and also some ocean side space. Terrific.

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

There were limited exhibits and nothing interesting to look at. In fact we find the bay at the back more interesting. There were colorful houses outside and some youngster paddle boating. Not recommended

A highlight of my Salvador visit this year was going to Jam do MAM, a concert on the piers next to the beautiful historic building MAM. To be honest, I didn't do inside the museum because it was closed by the time I arrived but...More
