  • I can say that the periodic table was materialized in the thousands of stones displayed by the Museum throughout its rooms. Fantastic giant collection! I loved it!!!!

  • The Museum was opened where it worked the mining School, and was directly responsible for the recovery of the economy and political importance of Ouro Preto, after the end of the gold cycle. The complex houses a mining museum, a Natural history, and a lounge with copies of virtually all types of crystals, minerals, rocks and metals found in Brazil, in addition to copies brought from other countries. The local account with cloakroom, toilets, water cooler, and an entry with beautiful view of Tiradentes square. So much so that it is common to find at the entrance a few couples enjoying the view that the site offers. For better use of the structure of the Museum, I recommend spending at least 3 hours. It runs from Tuesday to Sunday from 12 to 5:00 pm.
