Overall, a good interactive museum. As with other sites in the area, you need a good command of Portuguese but if you have it you will enjoy the exhibits. Otherwise it will just be a case of looking at beautiful stones and minerals.

About 66% of the displays have captions in Portuguese and English, and all the videos are in Portuguese. I would give this an excellent rating if all the captions were bi-lingual, and if there were an option for English subtitles/language for the videos. The museum does a excellent job of teaching mineralogy as it pertains to this region.

This imposing building in Praça Liberdade houses the local mineralogy museum. While not as impressive as the mineral museum in Ouro Preto it nevertheless gives a great overview of mines and minerals in the state of Minas Gerais. Located on three darkened-for-effect floors, allow about an hour to see the displays and interactive exhibits. There is even a meteorite found n 1965. It's open on Sundays and entry is free.

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.
