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.

  • The Museum was created in 1968 to gather pieces of religious art and documents to preserve the acquis of the parish n. s. da Conceição. The name honors the artist born in Ouro Preto, Antônio Francisco Lisboa (Aleijadinho). They said the museum works on a circuit that includes three historic churches: n. s. da Conceição, São Francisco de Assis and n. s. das Mercês and Pardons. I only managed to visit the parts in s. f. de Assis ... Well worth a look at the wealth of details of the master Aleijadinho.

  • The Museum is temporarily in the Church St. Francis of Assisi and has very few pieces on display. I can't tell you what it's like in the original, but the visit as it is currently and costing $10.00 ended in disappointment.
