  • The Museum is very well preserved and accessible. You can request a guided tour to learn more about the mining culture, mainly about the Jequitinhonha Valley. Despite being only a few blocks from freedom square, I recommend a visit to glimpse a little of the history of the Baroque, the Congo and so many remarkable works.
