  • Small and not-so-interesting Museum, but if you have with time recommend to stop because admission is free and for those who want to breathe the air of Diamantina history should visit.

  • The Museum is located right next to the St. Anthony Parish, but has no sign. Must go asking until you arrive on site. The visit is free and worth getting to know a little of the history of the camp and the lives of residents in the past centuries.

  • We were thinking that we would see only diamonds It was a surprise ... the Museum counts for a lot with the time of slaves was a bit sad to see the weapons used to torture them. We love this visit. Well worth getting to know.

  • 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.
