AbstractThe policies adopted for the preservation of heritage in a country significantly reflect the way the issue of citizenship and its development in relation to identity receive the attention and importance to the consolidation of a real democracy. Thus, recognizing how these policies are presented in Brazil is a clear outline of the advances and deficiencies involving the question of national identity, especially regarding African-Brazilian culture. Today, when we consider the broad concept of heritage, we can clearly see the image built by the policies of property, which have been in development for over 60 years in the country and we would still be far from seeing the diversity of cultural production in Brazil. Following this perspective, this work presents a comparative analysis focused on the position adopted by three museums that have African Brazilian culture as a theme: The Museum of Black Magic, established in 1912 in Rio de Janeiro; MAFRO museum, founded in 1982 in Salvador; and Afro Brazilian Museum of Sao Paulo, established in 2004. Through this survey, we can see the different ways they configured their collections, origins and justifications, which led to a reflection of how the heritage instrument of the museum has been used in the course of our history and which museum narratives have been modeled on African-Brazilian culture.
