  • This museum has one of the largest collections of paleontology (fossils 60,000) of South America and about 17,000 copies in the collections of plants, animals, invertebrates, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. It is extremely clean and organized, the people who work there have training, culture and knowledge. In a big city like Belo Horizonte, you are faced with this Museum in the face of an exuberant nature and paleontólogas figures. Is simply amazing!!! I was fascinated ...

  • The visit is very interesting! Exceeded my expectations! I think it's worth check out your collection, which features various members of our fauna.

  • For a city with lack of natural science museum, the Museum of the Puc is great. Are several floors with super cool samples and all monitors are attentive and sweet. I went to College and had the opportunity to go on the terrace and look at stars and the moon. I know that the Museum offers a kind open to the public, but I don't know tell me when.
