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!

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... More

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.

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.

Very impress on how they make the mining and geology an interesting subject. If you want to learn about the area and all the minerals and semi precious stones, it is a must. Also learn about the history and how slavery played a big part in the mining industry.

If you want a very interesting enjoyable time, the Mines and Metal Museum, in Belo Horizonte, is a right address. There you will find information, beauty and leisure in the same place. It’s worth visiting.

Expect a lot of suprises, as the curators were able to design a Mining museum with lots of interaction. Even the shelves with different mineral samples are not displayed in the boring "normal" way that you see around the world. There is also a nice cafe in the ground floor.

Fabulous displays, great collection, everything was very modern and attractive! I was only about to stay for an hour but this museum would be great for kids and a much longer visit.
