  • The richness of details of this work impresses. Extremely pleasant location, within the reserve/park of the Horto neighborhood and also along with the Museum of Natural History, it is very worth the ride.

  • It is an unmissable visit for those visiting the Natural History Museum. I found it closed because it does not open every day but I have seen it several times and it became even more beautiful after it was restored and reinaugurated. The nativity scene has about 600 pieces and several scenarios. Those who visit never forget but also worth visiting a myriad of attractions within the botanical garden. All very beautiful and easy access as it is about 10 to 15 minutes from the center of BH, at Instituto Agronômico
