  • It's worth taking a whole day to visit. Many attractions on all floors. In addition, delicious food in the café on the first floor.

  • Museum is very controversial, but always worth the visit. The place, however, is the endless metal staircases... Free admission-rare fact in Minas Gerais (we pay admission in all churches).
