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.
