Carlos Costa Pinto Museum (Museu Carlos Costa Pinto) Tours

The Carlos Costa Pinto Museum takes visitors back in time to the everyday lives of the aristocracy from Bahia’s sugarcane-producing days in the 1600s – 1800s. Carlos Costa Pinto was a descendant from one of Bahia’s old, affluent families and collected pieces from centuries past. When he passed away, his wife decided to donate his collection and inaugurated the museum in his honor in 1969. 

Housed in a mansion in the upscale neighborhood of Vitória, the museum is home to pieces that demonstrate the luxurious, decadent lifestyle of Bahia’s aristocracy. This includes jewelry made of pure gold and precious stones, crystal, porcelain and nearly 1,000 pieces of silver. The museum is also home to portraits and paintings that portray these times, as well as well-preserved pieces of furniture. Outside the museum there’s a lovely green garden, with manicured lawns and hedges and a pond, surrounded by leafy tropical trees.
