    To start the Museum is installed in a building about 1740. And no there was Aleijadinho's father that "built" (Manuel Fco Lisbon). Have samples of rocks and minerals in the world. There is also the area of topography, metallurgy, natural history, etc. A real treat. I took my 10 year old son, I don't need to tell you how fun it was. Unfortunately there were no guides to lead the Museum's own visit. I guess like all depend on State funds, foundations, etc in this country there is no financial support.

    Outside is not as big, but the Museum is complete. Certainly worth a visit.

    Wonderful collection. You can stay all day just watching rocks. Beautiful, rare, precious. There's also fossils and a replica of mine.

Where to stay in Ouro Preto
