“Excellent place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

The Museu Das Minas & Do Metal is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. You can view many types of gemstones native to Brazil, particularily the State of Minas Gerais, and learn some of the most important history of Belo Horizonte as well. All of the displays have explanations in both Portuguese and English. This is much appreciated!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

The museum was way more interesting than I had expected. It's a fun place for adults and even children. All the rooms have a bit of interactive content so you end up learning in a pleasant way. The fact that you can buy souvenirs there is also a plus, not to mention that there's a cafe - always an opportunity to spend more time inside the building and be amazed by its wonderful architecture. I highly recommend it.

“a trip through the mines.”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

On Praca Liberdade with a mix of modern and old arquitecture. Very nicely done with exhibits of all the minerals you'd want to decorate your house with. But also, very informative about the developmenta nd history in Minas.

“If you like mining, then visit this museum”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

I'm working in the mining industry and enjoyed this museum much more than i thought i would. It covers many metals and minerals, is interactive and interesting. I thought we'll only go for a few minutes and stayed a few hours. The scanner showing your mineral content in your body (the scanner actually scan your body) was interesting.
