  • The Museum offers various spaces for exploration of the knowledge in the natural sciences, engineering Minas Gerais as important Collaborating Center for the production of knowledge in this particular area. Special mention to Peter Wilhelm Lund, Lund, considered the father of paleontology and archaeology in Brazil. Presents samples of rare and curious animals, enriching the ride recommended for all ages.
