Carlos Costa Pinto Museum displays a great collection of luxury items, antiques, treasures, and artifacts collected over a lifetime by philanthropist Carlos Costa Pinto. The US colonial style mansion is the actual house where the Costa Pintos were meant to live, but never lived there, and adapted the house to the new museum function. Beautifully displayed and well-lit exhibits show an array of decorative arts, jewels, and gold. The museum also has a library and an auditorium for events and lectures.
