“Brazilian history class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

I visited Ouro Preto city last December, and I can tell this museum is very nice! Well organized, clean and well maintained. It´s like watching a brazilian history class and coming back to the past, remembering all the stuffs I learned at school like 20 years ago (lol). I really liked the interactive screens, where you can read more about this period of history. It really worth a while to pay a visit there!
