  • 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!
