Museu Histórico Abílio Barreto

A great museum for history lovers, named after the 20th century writer Abílio Barreto. Sprawling Belo Horizonte was little more than a farm (fazenda) until 1893, and this museum, set in the farm's only surviving buildings. The history is brought back to life in MHAB (the initials of the museum and how it is called by Mineros), of this city that is a bit more than a hundred years old, but what changes it has gone through! A new building was inagurated in 1998 next to the old one with contemporary exhibits, a library, auditorium and a pleasant cafe. The museum buildings are set in a pleasant park. Open tuesday-monday, 10-17h
