As a geologist, nothing makes me happier than a fantastic collection of minerals, and this museum has one! Definitely worth a visit just to see the minerals.

Excellent, that museum has very different things to see.
Minas Gerais, the state, is well known in Brazil by being the area that is explored the nature to export metals to all around the world. This museum kind of celebrates this. Inside, the little store near the cafeteria sells different kind of rocks, the attendant was very attentive to us by explaining and showing a lot of rocks. Check all floors, including the roof, where you can have a great view of the neighborhood. ⚠️ There is no 5 stars because it should repare the memory of the lost souls in the recent tragedies near the city, when a flood of mud with heavy metals destroyed entire neighborhoods and families.
