Museu Afro Brasil

One of the city's best and most important museums is slightly off the radar despite its privileged position in Ibirapuera Park (São Paulo's largest urban green space), but its captivating permanent collection chronicling five centuries of African immigration is well worth seeking out. A vibrant celebration—and sometimes horrifying accounting—of Afro-Brazilian history and culture in Brazil is both unsettling and fascinating, as are the rotating Afrocentric exhibitions housed on the bottom two floors.
