The sector operates in the production and dissemination of knowledge related to the collection of documents under the custody of the museum, in close collaboration with the Historical Archive. The projects, structured in thematic pillars related to aspects of colonial history, refer to the Museu da Inconfidência collection and the history of the city of Ouro Preto.
Researches are intent to the institutional demands and the public in general and temporary exhibitions of collections. The consolidation of the Database of Inconfidência Mineira is in progress, which will be entirely released in digital media.
The Research sector also coordinates the issue of scientific-technical magazine Oficina da Inconfidência , body aiming to the dissemination of studies and research that contribute to the knowledge of the museum collection and the Brazilian cultural heritage. The publication aims to be a space of polarization, interested in the fields of history, museology, heritage, restoration, musicology, art, anthropology, and sociology of Minas Gerais, prioritizing what else is related to the Inconfidência.
