Where to stay in Ouro Preto

  • The collection is really cool!!!! A variety of huge oratorios. Worth knowing to knowing a little of the development and manifestation of the Catholic religion. The Museum's exhibition only, so if you're looking for something more dynamic here is not a good place. No instructors in the exhibition, but the informational cards in each piece and at the entrance of the rooms are sufficient. It costs $10 entry.
