  • Huge variety of minerals, with a bit of natural history, fossils and geology. The price of admission is negligible for the offering.

  • The best photos in Ouro Preto you will draw in the garden of this place, that's because he's got a nice view of Tiradentes square and the Museum of the Inconfidência. Stay right in the Center, is near the shops, the handicraft market of soapstone and restaurants.

  • Rico Museum on history of ore extraction and has a variety of minerals on display. The first part of the Museum is pretty self-explanatory, however mineralogical sessions I and II if you don't already have a specific knowledge may be lost. Recommend a tour if you are interested in deepening their knowledge. It's not a quick ride. Fee is charged to enter.
