Abílio Barreto Historical Museum
The Abilio Barreto Historical Museum brings visitors back in time to the founding days of Belo Horizonte and through hundreds of years of history. In the 1940s, local journalist Abilio Barreto was commissioned by the city to organize Belo Horizonte’s general archives. Using century’s of historical artifacts, paintings, photos, and documents, the journalist curated the historical museum, which eventually found it’s home in the Fazendo do Leitão, a restored colonial farmhouse, typical of the first settlers of Belo Horizonte.
