Wise Stones Project

The “Wise Stones Interactive Interfaces” is a permanent exhibit of the Mines and Metal Museum (MM Gerdau). This is the result of an international research agreement involving LavMUSEU/UFMG, MM Gerdau and IPB. That project, awarded by the Ibermuseums Program, gave life to the Interactive Interface Accessible Circuit.
