New tour in Salvador !!! As off today we are offering a new option of excursion in Salvador which will allow visitors to have a different view of local culture in Bahia:

Bahia through the eyes of Amado, Carybé and Verger (Not available on MON and TUE)

Novelist Jorge Amado, artist Carybé and photographer Pierre Verger formed a formidable triumvirate of outstanding talent and artistic output in Bahia from the 1950´s until their passing. All were great friends, and each in his own genre and style documented daily life in Salvador and Bahia, focusing on the wide palette of cultural traditions and ethnic characteristics that form the mosaic that is Bahia, its markets, street scenes and religiosity.

In respect of their importance, each has been honored with a permanent exhibition center celebrating their respective life’s works.

Jorge Amado´s legendary home in Rio Vermelho, where he received so many of the world’s literary luminaries as his guests, has been converted into an emotive museum of his life and work.

The 17th century São Diogo fort at Porto da Barra beach houses an interactive audio-visual exhibition of the works of Carybé, he the master sculptor and painter who used such a wide range of materials and techniques; engravings, sculptures, watercolors, oil and acrylic canvases.

Also at Porto da Barra beach, Santa Maria Fort is home to a permanent interactive digital exhibition highlighting the iconic photographs of Pierre Verger, a French ethnologist, deeply inspired and trusted by Candomblé religious leaders, allowing him unparalleled access to sacred rituals. Like his two friends Amado and Carybé he also documented daily life in Salvador, markets and street scenes, his iconic black and white photos testament to the city´s cultural wealth. This cultural space also exhibits works by other leading local photographers

Works by featured artists are projected on the façades of their respective forts at 18:30 and 19:00 during opening hours.

Please note :

TOMORROW IS TODAY AND NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION

The Museum of Tomorrow is a science museum where visitors explore possible scenarios for the future on our planet through audiovisual exhibits, interactive installations and games, all based on data from Brazilian and international research institutions.

The museum’s narrative is guided by five central questions: ‘Where do we come from?’, ‘Who are we?’, ‘Where are we?’, ‘Where are we going?’ and ‘How do we want to live together over the next 50 years?’ The museum will encourage reflection about the Anthropocene era, when man began to alter the climate, degrade biomes and interfere with ecosystems.

The permanent exhibition at the Museum of Tomorrow will offer 53 different experiences grouped into five main areas: the cosmos, the earth, the anthropocene, tomorrow and us. Each of the five areas will present visitors with an overview, as well as the opportunity to look deeper into the topics.

Technology is employed to enrich visitors’ experience. A team of over 30 Brazilian and international consultants from a range of areas composed the content of the main exhibition. The museum’s partners include some of the most important science institutions in Brazil and abroad, including The National Institute of Space Research (INPE, by its Portuguese acronym), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Located at Pier Mauá, the Museum of Tomorrow is one the anchors of the Porto Maravilha Project. Established to revitalize Rio’s port area, it covers approximately 322 square feet and features outdoor greenspaces, a reflecting pool, a bike path and a recreation area. The museum employs sustainable architectural practices and is seeking LEED certification from the Green Building Council (USGBC). Local natural resources are incorporated in the construction. Water from the Guanabara Bay, for example, will be used for interior climate control and then to supply the reflection pool. Solar panels will be installed on large, moveable, wing-like steel structures on the roof.

 

Additional Facilities at the Museum of Tomorrow

In addition to the main exhibition area, the museum will feature space for temporary exhibitions, a 400-seat auditorium, a cafe, restaurant and a museum shop. The museum will also house the Laboratory for Exploration of Tomorrow, a space for educational activities and exhibition of projects and prototypes. Reports and other sources of up-to-date information on technological and scientific research on topics related to the museum will be available in the Observatory of Tomorrow. These resources will also be used to update data in the museum’s permanent exhibitions.

The Museum of Tomorrow will offer visitors meaningful, interactive experiences to learn about the complex processes that are transforming our planet, and to understand how our actions now will affect future generations.
