Museum of Mineralogy reviews
I did not see anything extraordinary, but its an ok place if you like gems. there is a variety of rocks and stones from all over the world more »
You'll spend a nice time visiting this place. We found it a bit messy : this place is (was) apparently a school but carries many names, as museum of science, museum of mineralogy, etc. nothing clear.... more »
This is one of the top museums in Ouro Preto to see. There are excellent exhibits on natural history including fossils and shells as well as diagrams. There is another section that is all about mining techniques, touching on some historical aspects such as slavery. There is a very well made section showing all the different types of gemstones and minerals including their geometries and structures. I can say that it was fascinating even for someone not passionate about geography. I highly recommend a visit. The building is really nice as well.
