  • Extremely interesting, interactive museum. It's worth it. Both the building as the content of the exhibits are very beautiful and curious ...

  • I loved the ride! Although the floor of metals was closed on the day, the floor of the mines enchanted me! Beautiful facilities with most Brazilian stones, replicas of the most famous diamonds, all set in a smart way and flawless! I intend to go back!

  • Easy-to-access location and several nearby cultural attractions, facilities very well designed and structured by setting on a local promoter of education on one of the main assets of MG, mining. Worth the visit.

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.
