Ricardo Brennand Institute (Instituto Ricardo Brennand) Tours

With its castle-like façade and sprawling complex of museums, galleries and gardens, the Ricardo Brennand Institute has fast become one of Recife’s most important cultural attractions. Inaugurated in 2002, the cultural center is the brainchild of its namesake, collector Ricardo Brennand, and is renowned for its fascinating collection of historic artifacts, including a large section devoted to Brazil’s Dutch settlers. 

Highlights of the museum include the world’s largest collection of armory, dating from the 14th to the 19th century; a sizable collection of paintings by Dutch artist Frans Post; an array of 
exquisite antique furniture; and a selection of rare Dutch coins.

Practical Info

The Ricardo Brennand Institute is located in Recife, around 14km west of the central beaches, and is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 1 to 5pm.
