Museu Náutico da Bahia

Top choice museum in Salvador

Our Review

In addition to having superb views, the Forte de Santo Antônio da Barra contains the excellent nautical museum, with relics and displays from the days of Portuguese seafaring, plus fascinating exhibits on the slave trade. All information is offered in both Portuguese and English – a rarity in Bahia. If you only have time for one museum in Salvador, this is the one.
