Samba Museum

The Samba Museum is a non-profit cultural organization created to value and promote the culture of samba in all its manifestations and dimensions. Located at the foot of Mangueira – where the Cartola Cultural Center was located – the Museum launches a platform of community, local, national and international importance for valuing samba as culture, acting with memory, collection, safeguard, education and citizenship.
