  • For those seeking entertainment in Barbacena, or knowledge about Psychiatry in Brazil, the Museum of madness is an excellent choice. It's a quick walk, with only one flight of stairs to climb, guided tour and entrance is free. There are still local, but inside they are in accommodation which cannot be accessed, some of these inmates have free access by flags and you'll end up crossing with some of them, which doesn't offer any kind of risk. Worth knowing a little bit of everything that happened with this population in the past, even to help psychiatric patients of today.

  • Quick ride. Very interesting to meet and reflect on the human craze. Admission is free. The guides are very friendly and take any questions. Rico collection of belongings of the interns, pictures, records, and kitchen utensils and medicine.

  • A place with Rico collection which depicts the reality of how they were treated en titled "crazy". Very sad reality but the Museum is very organized and is worth going.
