  • It's a surprise visit a museum that the theme is rocks, but the place is super nice and the stones are of unparalleled beauty. Set aside 1 hour to enjoy the stones.

  • The museum and the interactions are so good, you can touch a Cristal and a meteorite ! The gold mine elevator is awesome, but they say anything about Opala
  • Beautiful museum with great content even if you don't know Portuguese. If you visit it, search for the meteorite, it's an awesome experience to touch a rock from outside the earth.
  • Interesting and educational museum..quite modern also. Always have some good activities for kids to explore..Recommend..Good for families
  • Most of the exhibition is interactive and quite straightforward. Great opportunity to review your history, geography and chemistry! Highly recommended for kids.
  • Great location, has a coffee shop and the mining expo is very cool.
