Nice way to learn about mining in Brazil. The displays of the various minerals were facination. A little more english would have been helpful to us americans. But we were traveling with 2 portugese speakers who could translate for us.

Togheter with CCB and several other buildings around Praça da Liberdade, it´s a calm place where you can enjoy some art and sip a cup of coffee, a cold beer or a glass of wine. I vist it whenever I´m nearby.

One of the best museums I have been to in Brazil. It is really well maintained and the staff is helpful and always proactive. As it is in a central park, it is really easy to get to by public and/or private transportation. The information...More

Leave yourself at least two hours to enjoy the museum. The building itself is stunning with old colonial architecture, high ceilings, wooden doors and stained glass. The stones are exceptional and presented in diverse ways - including holograms!

Very interesting for all ages and an excellent, interactive, educative museum. You don't have to be a geologist to appreciate the exhibitions and apart from precious stones, you see what part some minerals play in our daily life.

Mines gerais is I think the centre of mining for metals in Brazil. The museum gives a very good view of its history and continuing extraction of ores etc. only downside not much English translation so need to understand Portuguese or go with a Brazilian!

This is the perfect museum for a state called "General Mines". At this modern museum you can find hundreds of different minerals, stones, blocks and even meteorites. They have an interactive periodic table and a scale that can even say your body minerals composition.
