    Although it is an interesting visit, I expected more information on issues involving the extraction and trade of diamonds in the region.

    Right in the center of town, stop by we can make quick visits, I liked the collection, care a bit about the history of the diamond and the characters who were part of it. Worth the visit.

    Free entry site and is right in the center of the city ... the collection includes various stones, diamond production issues and securities at the time ... ride lasts for about 20 minutes and there is no tab..

    Excellent space of knowledge acquisition and culture. The visitor is guided and the explanations given are unclear. The guide who accompanied us is friendly and cheerful. Lacking in identification of dates and Museum content/source of the exhibits.

    It was exciting to me that I'm a librarian-memoirist meet close parts of the past of this land blessed named Diamantina and this fantastic Museum and so dilapidated and in need of restoration in your building and collection called Diamond Museum. The figure of the young Cleber that guided us on a tour-journey through the history of Brazil and the Museum itself represented a new generation of young people who want to actually participate in it. My love to all the professionals of this museum so aware and courteous not disturbing in no time with my questions. Congratulations to all. Oh! I have a complaint to make: where's the Museologist to request restoration of the acquis? Await response.
