  • 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 place holds some of the most important documents of the Brazilian history. It always keeps the bodies of the first men to think about an independent Brasil: there's a small Pantheon inside the museum. It's important to understand that the episode remembered by this museum happened pretty much in line with the US independence and the french revolution and the industrial revolution. Minas Gerais was already economically and politically linked to the world by 1750+. #libertasquæseratamem
