DA SILVA MUSEUM OF ARTS AND CULTURE
Petit Futé's opinion on DA SILVA MUSEUM OF ARTS AND CULTURE
The museum was opened in 1998 in a building that is one of the most remarkable specimens of Porto-Novo's Afro-Brazilian architecture. Built in 1890, this house belonged to a rich family of «Brazilians», also called Agouda (the name of the former Portuguese patois used among the Métis). There is an atmosphere of bygone times. Pieces are furnished in the style of the time, old photographs are attached to the walls and, in the appendix of the museum, we must not miss the few copies of the Petit Journal, a French magazine reflecting the highlights of colonization, with fine illustrations. However, this is not the most interesting museum in the city.
