Museu do Homem do Nordeste

Recife museum about the folk culture and regional history of Pernambuco

About 7 km west of the centre, the Museu do Homem do Nordeste (Av 17 de Agosto 2223, Casa Forte) is a museum complex comprising the following: Museu de Arte Popular, containing ceramic figurines (including some by Mestre Alino and Zé Caboclo); the Museu do Açúcar, on the history and technology of sugar production, with models of colonial mills and collections of antique sugar bowls; the Museu de Antropologia; the Fundação Joaquim Nabuco (Av 17 de Agosto 2187, T081-3073 6363, http://www.fundaj.gov.br) ; and the modern museum of popular remedies, Farmacopéia Popular (T081-3441 5500, Tue, Wed, Fri-Sun 1300-1600, Thu 0900-1600, US$2) . To get to the museum complex, take the ‘Dois Irmãos’ bus (check that it’s the correct one, with ‘Rui Barbosa’ posted in window, as there are two) from outside the Banorte building near the post office on Guararapes, but it is much easier to take a taxi (around US$15).
