  • Highlight of my trip in Minas Gerais so far. I had the most amazing day exploring Inhotim. There’s a bus service which leaves the main bus station at 8:15 and then brings you back at 5:30 every day...  more »

  • The park is nice and well kept. Some interesting and beautiful architecture, ponds, trees and flowers. They have good food at the self serve restaurant, but the place is busy at lunch time. There are interesting exhibits, but quite a few seem to be under maintenance and temporarily closed at any given time. Unfortunately, and maybe surprisingly, I don't think the park is very family friendly. There is a traffic problem, which takes some of the fun out of the experience. I am referring to the numerous electric cars for personal transportation, whizzing around the trails. It's good that they provide a mobility solution for the many, many physically challenged people visiting the park, but the way they do this is very hazardous to pedestrians. Especially to the children playing and running around. The cars are almost silent, so you can't hear them coming. It shouldn't be too difficult to fix this by fitting some contraption providing artificial noise, like they do with many electric cars. They should also drive with the headlights on at all times. The very young employees should also adjust the vehicle speed when passing pedestrians, and they should pay attention to the job instead of their phones, I witnessed a boy driving one of these cars at full speed, barely missing young children on the path, while texting on his phone, eyes firmly fixed to the screen. This is insane, and there will be a serious accident soon, if nothing is done to prevent it. I have serious doubts if I will feel comfortable taking my kids back for another visit, or international guests visiting BH. Please find a solution to this issue before something bad happens.
  • Great place to visit, will definitely take at least two days to see everything. On our first day we made it through about 1.5 of there 3 paths without hurrying.
