    The Museum has a great collection, with pieces of the 18th and 19th century, and a good research regarding the making of the work in Brazil, especially from a bias of popular black classes. The expographic is nice (although the didacticism) and the pieces were in a good state of cleanliness and conservation. For those who want to understand the phenomena of work in contemporary times, the visit to the Museum is fundamental. Perhaps the biggest criticism of the Museum is not to have a criticism or a steadfast score the horror of black slavery in Brazil. We were very well attended by a monitor on the top floor (near the looms and make Indians) who accompanied us and talked about the links between Minas Gerais and Bahia.

    Beautiful very interesting Museum, by the collection of tools and utensils of the 18 and 19 centuries, the presentation clear and vivid. I really liked the interactive screens, especially about the drovers, with beautiful illustrations and information about the scripts, habits, ect ... Nice video on cane and sugar. Take Valley Kids!

    The most comprehensive Museum of Belo Horizonte. The history of Minas Gerais is well represented by objects found in the galleries.

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.
