MM Gerdau - Museu Das Minas E Do Metal Reviews & Ratings
I never new that iron ore extraction and steel production were such a feel-good, family friendly activity. Thankyou Gerdau and CBMM for educating me on this topic.
Nice museum at nicest square of the city. You can learn about mineralogy in a funny way.
Took my 4-year old there, and he really enjoyed the activities. I loved the exposition.
Fun and interesting place! I was not expecting the amount of samples and information
I believe this is a must for people who are VERY interested in minerals, rocks or diamonds.
