The building of eclectic style, facing the square Rui Barbosa was the Central Station of Belo Horizonte, the gateway to all the material in the construction of the city arriving by train. In another building, with entrance from the street Sapucaí, was the seat of Mining Network Traffic. Currently, there are two stations on site, a train and a subway. The buildings are connected by two tunnels, forming the galleries. MAO project which is of French Pierre Catel museographer proposes integrating museum / station.
