    Belo Horizonte was the first 'commissioned' city in Brazil, designed by architects and engineers to be the new and modern capital of Minas Gerais. Before the city was built, the area was a farmland known as Curral del Rey. The building where Abilio Barreto Museum is today was the manor house in Leitão Farm, a small estate set up in 1883 to accommodate the people working on the construction of the city. It became a Museum in 1943, curated by local historian Abilio Barreto. It has a vast collection of paintings, documents and personal objects that tell the history of the capital. Outside in the gardens, there is a tram car and a steam locomotive that were also part of Belo Horizonte's history.
