First of all, the building itself is a work of art with the wood and metal architectural details along with the stained glass and frescos. Secondly, entry was free!!! The exhibits were fun and interactive...great for all ages.

Housed in what was one of the State secretaries, in the palm-tree-lined Praça da Liberdade, this is one of the cultural spots to hit in Belo Horizonte. Opens at 11 am, with free entrance.

I visit it whenever I´m nearby Liberdade Square (Praça da Liberdade): it´s across the street from Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (also a good place to visit there) and besides de art galleries, I recommend the coffee shop.

You obviously need to have some interest in the place history to be here. They have displays of cultural interest and different activities throughout the year. The architectural style follows that of other buildings in Praça da Liberdade. Great to spend some time in.
