“The MAB has the primary mission to rescue, valorize and recognize material and non-material Afro-Brazilian patrimony, contributing to the strengthening of the identity and citizenry of the Brazilian people.” It has opened and closed many, many times in its history but the message behind the museum is important and it always finds a way to reopen.
You can see some cool photos of one of their exhibitions here on Flickr.
