  • I was delighted with the Museum. Very nice and everything is clean and organized. The building is impressive and the very interesting and well taken care of. Some huge machines and very interesting. Not to be missed: the garden of energies, to the bottom of the 2nd building, across the rail, having as background the traditional railing in columns of Forest District.

  • A museum where you can learn, as the name says, on the crafts of the inhabitants of Minas Gerais mainly in the 18th and 19th centuries. Curious parts used by drovers and miners at the time.

  • The perfect place if you want to know more about the Belo Horizonte and Minas Gerais history. There's a lot of artifacts and objects that show us everything of the past and the modern times.
  • It is a beautiful Museum with the history of the crafts of the region since the beginning of Brazil until the beginning of the 20th century. It is a good way to learn a little about the development of the country. It has a beautiful courtyard with old machines and is housed in a former train station, the train still passes through these channels and you can see as you move along the Museum. In addition the square having at the entrance has a beautiful view of the city, while there is understood because the city is called Belo Horizonte.

  • Muito interessante!
  • Fantástico! O museu mostra equipamentos e utensílios usados por trabalhadores de diversas áreas no período pré-industrial. Emocionante conhecer ou relembrar a época em que as coisas eram feitas de forma artesanal e mais trabalhada!
