Personal collection of Holy art gathered in the past 40 years. Small statues of Sant'Ana, mother of Virgin Marry, that were worshiped in Brazil during the XVI to XVIII centuries.

This is a very small (four rooms) museum, but worth the visit. It's very well maintained and built, and has a beautiful collection of Saint Annas. The building used to be the city prison, also worth the visit.

Small treasure in Tiradentes. Situated in an old jail, the museum is small but well organized and kept. Worth a visit

The former city jail is nice and well kept. Even if you're not so interested in the topic, it provides a new approach to museology and the Barroco. The visit is paid, but fare fares (we paid R$2,50 person).

This museum is really a small treasure in Tiradentes. Absolutely a "must" to be visited. The collection of sculptures of the "Saint Anna" is unique and the newly reformed building is for sure also worth a visit.

Beautiful museum remodeled and full of Brazilian slavery history. Very shocking to see the underground cells where the inmates where kept.
