Established in the historic house of the St. Carmel novitiate, once a home to Aleijadinho, this museum celebrates 18th- and 19th-century sacred art. Some of the oratories, which reflect ideas of religious beauty from the period, have been displayed at the Louvre!

This museum is very well kept and has free lockers to use to keep your bags so you can really enjoy the museum . The history of each oratory is very interesting and I gained a lot of knowledge just by reading them. Very educational indeed. The oratories are very colorful and they come in different sizes. It is my first time to visit a museum just for Oratories.I really enjoyed visiting this place and I plan to visit there again. This is a museum to see if you are visiting Brazil .

An oratório is not the usual thing to see and you'll get plenty of them in all possible forms.

Very nice museum, for those who like oratories. There´s a lot of them and the museum is very clean and maintained. I liked a lot the museum store, where you can buy really different oratories (I remember one made in match boxes, and other one made in beer bottle caps). Worth a visit!
