Casa do Pontal
Casa do Pontal is the largest museum of Brazilian folk art, displaying around 5,000 sculptures by more than 200 artists from every region of the country. The pieces that demonstrate many aspects of the life and culture of the Brazilian people are the main reason why the International Council of Museums (ICOM) considers Casa do Pontal a real anthropological museum. It is located 50 minutes from downtown, between the ocean and the Serra de Grumari ecological reserve. Species of tropical flora and fauna can be seen in the garden. The museum offers a database on Brazilian folk art and guided tours in 4 languages (booking required). It also has a bookstore and a coffee shop.
