Owner description: This museum of Brazilian history at Praca Tiradentes was at one time a prison.
Reviewed July 21, 2012

One of the best historical museums in Brazil, this former prison and onetime city hall has great interactive computer and television screen displays devoted to the history of the failed uprising of the Inconfidentes, life in colonial Tiradentes, slavery, and a number of other interesting topics. Other displays include period furniture, clothing, slaves' manacles, firearms, books, and gravestones, as well as works by Aleijadinho and Ataíde.

Worthwhile a visit if in Ouro Preto. Easy to locate in the main square and has nice views over town.

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!

This museum is a "place you must go". You can see lots of gold and silver antiques, clothes and other peaces from Colonial time
