Overview

Casa do Pontal is one of the largest museums of Brazilian folk art, displaying around 5000 sculptures by more than 200 artists from every region of the country. The pieces that represent 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 sea 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 four languages. It has a bookstore and a coffee shop.
