Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Minas Gerais / Belo Horizonte / Arts and Crafts Museum
With over 2,000 artifacts, the permanent collection in Arts and Crafts Museum presents a tactile display of the ingenuity and creativity of the Brazilian artisans pre-industrialization. As you examine the collection, notice how beautiful many of the tools were, despite their mundane purposes. The museum occupies two restored railway buildings, joined by an underground tunnel. The active train track running through the middle of the property is used by thousands of commuters daily. The creation of the museum has helped spur the revitalization of the square outside the museum, which sponsors regular cultural events.
