  • Impeccable. Exciting soundtrack, attendants prepared, excellent facilities. Great location. Unfortunately the bookstore that was foreseen hasn't had authorization to operate according to information that I was able to visit the Museum. Free admission on Wednesdays.

  • Without doubt one of the most modern museums of minas gerais. The Museum is self-explanatory and it is not necessary to guide. The quality and the provision of the acquis is sensational. A lot of interactivity with touch-screen screens that show relevant information the collection and even a book can be on screen veneer. Is it possible to know every detail of the design, construction and restoration of the sanctuary of bom Jesus de Matozinhos. The story, at least what is known about the construction of the prophets of Aleijadinho and the chapels of the steps and its famous life-size wooden sculptures, is very well explained, not to mention images in detail these unique parts of the Baroque. In fact all the Museum revolves around the Baroque and of your art. Aleijadinho is the main artist, but there are reports of other artists who participated directly, or indirectly, from the construction of the sanctuary and of the Baroque. Inside the main hall there are models very well built the churches of São José de Congonhas, the array of Nossa Senhora da Conceição and the Sanctuary of Bom Jesus de Matozinhos, positioned correctly, how willing originally in the city, with the floor forming a map linking them. The models are interactive and as we request information about them (the churches and the chapels) on the screen touch-screen, they turn on a very nice way. The so-called ex-votos and sacred images also have a dedicated room. At last an incredible experience in a modern Museum talking about old things, as mentioned in another comment.
