  • 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.

  • This museum is small, has very few showrooms, but the building is an attraction and the exhibitions are beautiful. It is worth visiting;

  • The folk art Center Cemig is more than a Museum, is a beautiful cultural centre. Designed to house the folk art, brings together paintings, sculptures and drawings. The collection brings together works of art ranging from prehistory to the contemporary urban art. Is on freedom square and has permanent exhibition halls, cafe, multi-purpose Auditorium, shop and space for temporary exhibitions. Works from Tuesday to Friday from 10 to 19 hours. On Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 19 hours and on Thursdays from 12 to 21 hours. Worth the visit!
