Aleijadinho Museum, Ouro Preto
(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Get a close-up look at the master sculptor's work at Aleijadinho Museum, the museum in his name. This well-maintained museum brings together his various pieces, serving as a lesson in history. The statues themselves, carved out of wood, seem almost alive and their “clothes” appear to be soft, flowing fabric. On your way out, stop by the church, where both Aleijadinho and his father are buried. Pay for a guide in order to receive the greatest benefit of your visit. Take a look at our Ouro Preto travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Aleijadinho Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The Museum is temporarily in São Francisco de Assis Church because the Church is under construction at the time. The exhibits are very interesting and certainly is a hotspot.

  • Unfortunately when we visited the Museum, in the Church of the array was closed for restoration. The Church Saint Francis of Assisi where the pieces were taken, few pieces are on display. The price is expensive (10.00 R$) for the offering.
