It is incredible! No doubt the best museum on Afro history in the Americas? Surprising! Breath taking! A must while visiting São Paulo. Besides, the Ibirapuera Park where it is located is another must see. Two great place in one, visit.

Very very impressive museum with many goosebumps parts. Good collection of a painful history. Amazing architecture by the great Brazillian Oscar de Niemeyer.

It's an ordinary museum, nothing surprised me. Depends on the exhibition and the schedule It is inside the ibirapuera park which is a beautiful park

What a huge and great collection. We really enjoy it. The main entrance changed and we almost didn't find it. It is placed inside the park Ibirapuera. Is there free wifi inside. (Ask for the password)

Very informative and has good collection reflecting slavery period and beyond. It is a mind opening exhibition about the life of Afro Braziliams.
