Ethnographic Museum

One of Cape Verde’s beautiful old colonial houses called sobrados has been converted into Praia’s Ethnographic Museum (Museu Etnográfico), devoted to the country’s rich past as a cultural crossroads. Displays range from the history of fishing and traditional panos (woven cotton fabrics) to cooking utensils used in the days before electricity. Musical instruments represent Cape Verde’s signature claim to fame in the world, and another, more modest, sobrado is today the Quintal da Música, a famous club where many legends have performed.
