    The Inhotim Museum is a cultural and natural treasure located in the city of Brumadinho, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The museum is known for its fusion of contemporary art and stunning nature. As visitors wander through the expansive botanical gardens, they encounter a world-class art collection that includes works by renowned artists, and now includes a blockbuster immersive piece. These works are strategically scattered throughout the galleries and outdoors, providing an immersive and stimulating artistic experience.

    The botanical gardens at Inhotim are also noteworthy. With an impressive variety of plants, trees and flowers from all over the world, the site offers a peaceful and inspiring relaxing and contemplative stroll. Visitors can lose themselves in the beauty of nature while exploring well-maintained trails and stunning landscapes, I'm in love with this vibe.

    To ensure a pleasant experience, the site offers an excellent accessible infrastructure, where you can also find restaurants and snack bars.
    The opening hours of the Inhotim Museum may vary throughout the year, so it is always advisable to check the official website for up-to-date information on opening times and special events. Generally, the museum operates from Tuesday to Sunday, with opening hours that allow visitors to enjoy a full experience during the day. However, I recommend arriving very early in the morning to make the most of it and to be able to explore everything.

    The Inhotim Museum is an unmissable destination for anyone who wants to experience the fusion of contemporary art and natural beauty. I highly recommend taking the family or a group of friends, it will be an unforgettable visit to this unique place in Brazil. Don't forget to drink plenty of water along the way and bring repellent/sunscreen!

    Very good way of distract yourself from the town. It’easy to go up but be prepared with appropriate clothes.
    From the top you can view Pedra do Baú and another spots.

    It's a great place! Lots of great unique water fountains to drink from. The lake, and the island on it's center, need to be cleaner, though.

    The Furnas Canyons are a “must go” place. The water is crystal clear and there are incredible water falls that drop directly into the lake. Water temperature is comfortable.

    The Lagoa da Pampulha (Pampulha lake) and the surrounding area are definitely a must see whenever you are visiting Belo Horizonte.

    It just a really calm area where you can just relax by the water or do a wide variety of activities.

    Be sure to also check out the local, small church which is also a must see.

    The contact with the bird, it was amazing. The care of caregivers with the birds, the experience of them with the animals was incredible. The atraction was placed 5-6km before the Monte Verde distrite. There is a little way, about 500 meters, in no pavimented road to the acess.

    I never imagined to find a place like that, so well preserved. the cave is amazing, the people are great. My suggestions is to go as early as possible, becaus after 10:30 am, groups begin to arrive and they are large. Our group only had 12 people and it was fantastic.

    If you're in Minas Gerais or Rio de Janeiro, I highly recommend a trip to this park. The views are PHENOMENAL! You'll get a great workout with all the hiking. Lots of hiking up and down - you'll need to be in shape for it, but you won't need special hiking equipment. Bring plenty of water, sun screen, and camera.

    This park has a lot of trails. You can choose a circuit and explore. There are beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking views. But attention: you have to be at the park entrance early (only 600 people are allowed per day).

    I went here on January 11 and 13, 2021. My main objective was to picture some birds and maybe other wildlife. On the first day many waterfalls were closed. I started going around the circuito das lagoas. I saw a good deal of birds there. Around 11.00 I walked towards the cachoeira do Capao, the only one open to visit this day. The waterfall was nice. There were quite many other visitors. The second day was nicer.I hired a bike at the entrance, and went for the cachoeira da Farofa and the canyon at the other extreme of the park. It was interesting to have to pass through some large bodies of water crossing over the roads and trails. The waterfall was nice, and drew many visitors. The great dusky swift is a bird that hangs out there. The canyon was alright too, although I didn't have time to explore it properly, and I drowned my phone while crossing the river to get there. Some kind of rail to hold on to while crossing would be nice there.

    Generally, the landscape is awesome. A serious drawback is that the place is hard to reach unless you have your own car. Taxis don't want to bring you over the entrance road, because it is in a bad condition, and the walk of 5 km lets you start the trails somewhat fatigued already. There is a bike rent in town, but it opens only at 8.00, at which time the park is already open.
