I learned a lot about the people who live in and from the Amazon and Rio Negro. A very complete museum where you can feel the Amazon way. Outside the museum yiu can find even working places and houses from the Amazon people. Yoy can even ger an Englush speaking guide.

They have the personal library of the anthropologist that was born and raised in Manaus. That made the best discoveries of the indigenous life of the Amazons and many other areas dedicated to the different tribes of the area.

Interesting collection of indian masks, hammocks, costumes. Also you can smell various natural products that are used to make parfymes (like Chanel # 5). Again, no English texts and explanations. Outside there was no museum/center sign...
