  • What a beautiful place! Excellent to enjoy objects, clothes, photos and old machines related to crafts of our history. All well maintained and well described.

  • The Museum is in the old train station building, which still works in parallel, but in independent site. The period architecture is beautiful, having been preserved the original building. The ride through the crafts, past and present, is a real history lesson. Go with plenty of time, the Museum is large and has a lot to see in detail.

  • This museum is located in Station Square in the city centre, very beautiful, with tools used by workers at the end of the 19th century

  • 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!
