    We were prepared for this to be a typical art museum experience. But it ended up surprising us with the beautiful and unique take on how to display artwork. Hanging the paintings on glass allowed us to see & appreciate the detail much better. Plus the vibrancy of the artwork downstairs was so refreshing! Each floor felt like a completely different experience.

    This place is nice for its arquitecture, exibitions, music, theatre and a whole range of cultural initiatives. Also, there is a nice and cozy coffee shop with specialty coffee and sweets. It is beautiful outside and inside and it is worth a visit.

    We took the subway Line 2 to get to the museum and got off at station Clinicas. From there, the museum is located in walking distance of about 15-20 minutes. It might be a bit tricky to finally get to the museum on foot but the surrounding area is fairly safe and thus could be an option apart from taking a taxi or Uber.

    Be aware that you don't get a physical ticket at the ticket office. Just head to the museum's entrance once you paid and confirm your payment orally towards the staff.

    The musem is split into 3 floors. It starts with the development and background of Brazilian football, visualises the most memorable moments of Brazil's football (including short portraits of some of the most formative players) and ends with a more interactive part where you can shoot at a goal yourself or play table football e.g.

    I liked the structure and diverse set-up of the museum. The content is provided in writing, on screens as well as through audio elements. Unfortunately, only a small part of the information provided by the museum has been translated into English. Your visit would be definitely more interesting if you understand Portuguese.

    I visited this museum twice. Once with my Brazilian friends in 2008 and then once again in 2021. So many opportunities for interaction with sounds and images. I love the museum. my favorite section is the World Map that showcases the Portuguese-speaking places around the world: Timor-Leste, and Macau (in Asia), Brazil (in S. America), Portugal (in Europe), and Angola, Cabo Verde, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, and Sao Tome & Principe (in Africa). Fantastic place for those interested in learning more about languages!

    The museum is simple, there is a quickly film about the park, but the legends are in Portuguese, should it have the option of phones to the foreign tourists. There are some photos and stuffed animals, but with such a rich fauna and flora of the Park, it could offer more. Also there isn t a coffee where the visitant could drink or eat something. So go if you have plenty of time, if not go for the waterfalls.

    Museum of Madness is a very interesting stop when in Barbacena! It’s collection shows a very sad chapter of the history of psychiatry in this area!

    For those curious and happy to spend some time inside museums, it's totally worthy! It brings something different to do and costs almost nothing! My wife and I enjoyed!
