Create an itinerary including Afro Brazil Museum
Brazil’s history is inextricably linked to the stories of African slaves and their descendants. These stories  have shaped the culture of modern Brazil, and the Afro Brazil Museum tracks their lineage with over 3,000 artifacts collected from around the country. Travel down the halls with an English-speaking guide to discover the museum's holdings. The guide is essential since all of the signage is in Portuguese. Along the way you'll see photographs, sculptures, furniture, masks, and documents; all of them telling the harrowing tales of life as a slave and the struggle to find freedom in a new land.
