Owner description: Paço do Frevo is a cultural resource center that gathers actions, projects and activities to enhance, protect, promote and convey frevo, a leading national tradition, recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Paço do Frevo is a public space for the diffusion, research, leisure, formation and support of frevo's music and dance, with the goal of spreading its practice through the future generations. It's a place to contemplate, study, create and experiment. We have built a popular and democratic environment where people can meet, learn, and discover the energy and vitality of frevo, an artistic expression that aggregates both the collective momentum and personal transgression. In this renovated building that combines preservation and modernization, you will find a whirlwind of images and emotions. A state of mind. A rich, complex and dynamic system of artistic expressions, traditions and crafts related to the Pernambuco and Brazilian popular celebrations.

This is a small museum that tells the story of the Frevo, one of the main regional dances of Recife. Is a place to go if you want to know the history of the places and people you visit. It won't take long and they have a good display.

So, I am told this museum started this year and it is high time since Frevo is so Recife! The good thing is that most things are in both Portuguese and English. BUT I feel this is a lost opportunity...Except for the third level where they have a dance instruction every few minutes there is little experience of the dance and music. They have two rooms devoted to a movie; one on dance and one on music; really? One can watch these docs at home; one does not come to a museum for that.. and the first floor is so jammed with written info; it does not feel like a music and dance museum...
