  • Beautiful building, regional artists, crafts. There are 4 floors with small rooms, air conditioned, and with interesting exhibitions. I found some a little dark and the bathroom bad flagged. Highlighting the work of rendeiras, just wonderful. Missed a gift shop and a cafe, to spend more time there!

  • I expected more but there was a couple of nice things to view
  • Excellent. There are new exhibitions often featuring artists not so well known. Great opportunity to show your art and delight yourself with the art of others.

Where to stay in Belo Horizonte

Most of the city's accommodations lie within the inner ring road, in close proximity to the best attractions in Belo Horizonte. For convenience, look to stay in the vicinity of Praça Raul Soares, the city's central park and rotary. You can also find a range of high-rise hotels a bit farther south, in the neighborhoods of Boa Viagem and Savassi, close to Praça Diogo de Vasconcelos. About 10 km (6.2 mi) north of the city center, the 1940s neighborhood of Pampulha stands out as one of the most interesting places to visit in Belo Horizonte, and offers a decent selection of lodgings near the airport.
