  • An excellent space for the preservation of the history of Brazil. The guidance of Dona Francisca was of excellence. A lesson in who lived a great part of your life in that place. Stories that make us reflect on how human evil has no limits and that there are people who didn't get beyond the situation and were able to make a difference. Congratulations on the job, congratulations to keep alive a memory of something that should never happen again.

  • The Museum of madness offers a unique experience. Allowing to preserve our history, for us to look past the most critical and can reflect with sensitivity about who we are and we want to be, even if that means we have to be in touch with the pain and sadness of the living times of agony and misunderstanding. Tour not to be missed! "We need to look to the past not to commit the same mistakes in the future."

  • This museum is located in the Psychiatric Hospital Center of Barbacena (CHPB). It's small, but with a great collection that recalls the story of the first psychiatric hospital of MG. The tour was guided by Mrs. Frances (Chiquinha), very helpful and gave us a history lesson about the location. We thank Mrs. Heloise by tb attention and sympathy. The Open House is free.
