Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Defined as an EXPERIENCE MUSEUM, Memorial Minas Gerais Vale brings the soul and traditions of Minas Gerais in an original and interactive way. Actual and virtual scenarios mix up to create experiences and sensations that take visitors from the 18th century to the 21st century. Far from giving visibility only to the historical record, the Memorial puts present and past in direct contact, thus promoting other forms of bringing visitors closer to issues present throughout our times. Opened in 2010, the building where Memorial Vale is located formally headquartered the Minas Gerais Treasury Department. The historical building dates back to 1897 and is the place where Belo Horizonte's foundation stone was set. The construction is listed by the Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute of Minas Gerais - IEPHA/MG. The Memorial was created and is maintained by Vale through its Foundation, and is part of the Praca da Liberdade Cultural Circuit. Visitation is open to everyone, free of charge Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday: from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with doors open until 6 p.m. Thursday: from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., with doors open until 10 p.m. Sunday: from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with doors open until 4 p.m.

A lovely museum to visit in Liberty Square- please remember to take an IPad loaned with headphones given free of charge which gives explanations on the various rooms exhibits in English & Portuguese languages . This is available from the reception area on the right side of the entrance behind which are the free Lockers for your handbags etc.
The Old Building was under repair and some areas blocked off - nonetheless well worth the visit.
VALE has contributed a lot to the development of the state and country and this museum does justice to its great contribution to the economic development of Brasil.

Housed in an historical building, this museum is a great homage to Mineiro culture and I enjoyed the displays. Bear in mind however that you need a good command of written and oral Portuguese to fully understand the exhibits as there are very few brochures in English and none in other languages.

Housed in what was one of the State secretaries, in the palm-tree-lined Praça da Liberdade, this is one of the cultural spots to hit in Belo Horizonte. Opens at 11 am, with free entrance.
