Step into the sacred when you visit Museu da Liturgia, the only museum in Latin America dedicated to the celebration of the intense religious devotion of the city and region. A fantastic combination of the traditional among modern elements, this museum is not only for religious folks, rather a unique attraction located within the surrounding hills.

  • 5 stars because this museum is fantastic! A little bit super cozy, modern and ancient, with a beautiful visual for serra. The collection is very interesting, being possible to understand better the purpose of apguns objects used in religious rites Catholics. In addition, as are parts of the historic mining Center is a real journey to the times of the gold exploration. So the Museum addresses the dynamic faith, religion, culture and history. Although not very large, perfectly fulfills the intended function. When I went (2015) the Museum was in perfect condition and had free musical performances weekly. I was very well attended at the reception and tour guide. Not to be missed.
