It is hard to properly explain Inhotim to someone who has never been. A mixture between museum, park and botanical garden, this 2,000-acre space adjacent to the town of Brumadinho, just 35 miles (56 km) from the major city of Belo Horizonte, is a truly unique location which is often regarded as one of the best open-air museums in the world and nicknamed the “Disney World of Art”.
Opened to the public in 2006, Inhotim was founded by mining magnate Bernardo Paz, who wanted a place to house and display his extensive collection of modern and contemporary art. Today, Inhotim is home to countless museums and many open-air exhibitions which integrate themselves beautifully into the surrounding natural environment.
Next time you’re in Brazil, dedicate a couple of days to see this indescribable national treasure. Quoting the owner and creator Bernardo Paz, people transform themselves in Inhotim.Find places to stay with our partner, Hotels.com
