  • Around the square of freedom, is the Gerdau Museum and other museums. The visit is very interesting, you don't pay. Has exhibitions about the stones, including interactive with the visitor. I loved

  • This is one of the museums located in Praça da Liberdade and worth the visit to learn more about mining. Audiovisual facilities that explain the history of the region and a collection of interesting rocks.

  • The edf. history, built in 1987 was restored with award-winning design arch. Paulo Mendes da Rocha and your son Pedro. Are 3 floors with interactive displays that show the importance of the metal in our life. The architectural restoration solutions have glazed volumes for elevator and stairs, metal coatings and glass cover of the central span that really reminded me of the Pinacoteca (São Paulo) which was also restored by Paulo Mendes da Rocha.
