Museu do Homem do Nordeste

Interesting
The Museu do Homem do Nordeste offers a very rich and varied presentation of different aspects of Pernambucan culture. Artefacts such as costumes, habitats, everyday objects, crafts and also instruments used to inflict torture on slaves each shed light on sugar production, the traditional way of life or folk and religious events. The collections are made up of exhibits formerly distributed between three museums: the Sugar Museum, Anthropology Museum and Popular Arts Museum.
