  • Like the crib because of your simplicity that surprises, ideal for interactivity with children outdoors, has tours with guides and several attractions. Must improve the cleaning and maintenance of some buildings as well as some interactive works. Worth knowing.

  • The Nativity scene Piripipau is quite simple, however, is a nice attraction to visit. He is within a campus of UFMG, where there are several other legal exposures. In addition, shuttle comes close, and the entrance to all exhibitions (including crib) costs only 10 reais.

  • Attraction not to be missed. In addition to the curious lay engineering feat, gathers in one same stage mining and culture icons of the city. Important go with time or come back more often to enjoy the other attractions of the Park.
