Bolsa do Café is a beautiful but ecletic construction used as the time coffee was the most impotant product exported in Brazil and Santos was (and still is) the port used for this exportation. Now, it is a museum of the history of that time,...More

It's a beautiful building from the beggining of the last century (1922). Original furniture, windows, doors, vitrals were recuperated by a restoration project made by Oficina R and architect Samuel Kruschin in 1997. Now it's a nice and rich place to learn more about the...More

I enjoyed visiting this museum it's not very big but the building is beautiful and it explains the history of coffee in Brazil. If you're a student you can pay half an entry. Don't forget to try an expresso or coffee in their coffee shop.

Not much English spoken but excellent history. Very inexpensive. Must store your bags in a locker before entering: no fee for storing. Camera ok but flashes not allowed. Modestly well organized. There are three floors to see and a small video of how coffee is...More

This was an ok visit for us but for those who know little about coffee history and production should find the museum interesting. The building architecture is brilliant, the coffee shop is overpriced and the English translations are on cards in each section of the...More
