Misericórdia Museum

-Salvar nos favoritos-

The imposing 17th century palace, located between Praça Municipal and Praça da Cruz Caída, is an important part of the history of Bahia and Brazil. In each of the corridors and salons of the Misericórdia Museum, something recounts health, political and social events of Salvador city. This place has already housed the Charity Hospital, the first health unit in the state, which story begins in the same year that the Bahian capital was born in 1549.

The collection, composed of more than 3 thousand cataloged pieces, contextualizes a historical narrative of almost 500 years. Highlights for the tiles from 1712, which reproduce the Fogaréu Procession, the Pharmacy, the 1867 cupboard that has been exclusively built to store bottles of pharmaceutical substances from the Charity Hospital, and the first car powered by gasoline of Bahia and the oldest on display in Brazil.

The panels, canvases, ornaments and furniture reflect a way of thinking, habits and customs from Brazil and Bahia of yesteryear, which allows us to carry out socio-cultural and educational actions for different audiences. In the Pharmacy Hall, there is a replica of Brazil’s first Wheel of the Exposed, implanted by Santa Casa da Bahia, in 1734, that also composes the secular collection.

The place conservation, the beauty of the pieces and the quality of the guided tour are incredible. The monitors are great; the stories told make each room have a life of its own!
