Museu da Inconfidência

Museu da Inconfidência (Praça Tiradentes 139, Centro Historico, Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais) — the Museu da Inconfidência (Inconfidence Museum) is set inside a well-preserved former jail built between 1784 and 1854, with pale stone walls and arched windows sitting against a painted white facade. It’s one of Ouro Preto’s best examples of civil colonial architecture. Today, the museum that is housed here pays homage to the people who died during the unsuccessful revolution of 1789 that fought for independence from Portugal. Admission: R$10 per person. Hours: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm (Tuesday – Sunday).
