My husband and I were very impressed with this museum. After signing in, we were met immediately by Adriano, an English-speaking guide. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about the roll of the Church in the lives of early Bahians. He...More

This is a great place to start your tour of Pelourinho, since you get a guided tour that explains a lot about the history of the city. The building itself is beautiful and fascinating, with great views over the bay.

This is a former hospital, now a museum. The admission price includes a guided tour and we had an excellent guide, who spoke very good English. The visit gave us a real insight into the life of Salvador in the past.

Private owned is very well taken care of and offers a guide at the entrance, unfortunately there are not guides that spoke english at the day I was there. Suggest you to take a guide with you.
