  • Small but beautiful collection of mining art. The building is located in the vicinity of Liberdade Square and is part of the cultural circuit of the area. It is worth spending 1 hour in this simple museum.

  • It has a great collection of really popular art of mining culture, examples of religiosity and faith through embroideries and sculptures of the simple people of the state. I missed a souvenir shop where you could buy handicraft pieces.
