  • The visit is extremely fast and the guide speaks too fast and there's no time for visitors to appreciate the objects as well as ask questions. The place is poorly identified passing unnoticed easily.

  • The Museum would have a great potential to show the entire history of the diamond, but is very poorly explored. In fact, the entire history of the diamond mining is poorly explored in Diamantina. The Museum has a diverse collection, which now refers to the camp, now the society history, pray to the religiosity. Has a little too much, and in unrelated contexts. The Museum is difficult to locate, to be signaled. Admission is free and the guide was an odd sympathy, explaining each of the rooms in a goodwill amazing! Deserves investment!!

  • Despite the name this museum does not expose all parts related to diamonds, has a good collection of religious art and furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries. Worth visiting.

  • Poderia ser bem melhor.
  • Muito lindo
  • Lindo esse lugar
  • O acervo parece interessante, mas não há descrição suficiente sobre as peças. Os funcionários não são atenciosos e a companhia intensiva do segurança torna-se quase uma ofensa.
  • Recepção de pessima qualidade e nada de diamantes ok era apenas a casa de um padre da época sem descrição dos objetos o ( a ) não tem a comciência do que esta apresentando
