  • Has beautiful collection of art and craft prospector, but does not have varied programming. Worth a visit to see what is produced mainly in the interior of the State.

  • One block from the Praça Tiradentes, the folk art museum has a collection of breathtaking. Very nice piece, frowns from the San Francisco paintings. And like BH is a confluence of regions rich in theme, the impression is that the Museum really is this antenna which captures all the wonders of the region. One of the best attractions in the city, no doubt.

  • The place is really nice and the acquis takes us to the farms and homes in the interior. Will you Saints, sculptures and many interesting things. However, I found the place a little lost, the security was slow to me at the entrance to keep my backpack and the floors, with exception of the last, had no monitors. In addition to dangerous because malicious people can take anything. Oh, also the air conditioning was turned off and was very hot.
