Overall, a good interactive museum. As with other sites in the area, you need a good command of Portuguese but if you have it you will enjoy the exhibits. Otherwise it will just be a case of looking at beautiful stones and minerals.

About 66% of the displays have captions in Portuguese and English, and all the videos are in Portuguese. I would give this an excellent rating if all the captions were bi-lingual, and if there were an option for English subtitles/language for the videos. The museum...More

Nice way to learn about mining in Brazil. The displays of the various minerals were facination. A little more english would have been helpful to us americans. But we were traveling with 2 portugese speakers who could translate for us.

Togheter with CCB and several other buildings around Praça da Liberdade, it´s a calm place where you can enjoy some art and sip a cup of coffee, a cold beer or a glass of wine. I vist it whenever I´m nearby.

Leave yourself at least two hours to enjoy the museum. The building itself is stunning with old colonial architecture, high ceilings, wooden doors and stained glass. The stones are exceptional and presented in diverse ways - including holograms!
