A living museum in the heart of the forest The Museum of the Amazon - Musa is a living museum, housed in the Reserve Adolfo Ducke, a primary forest area of 10,000 hectares located in the north of Manaus. There is also the Botanical Garden Adolfo Ducke. Opened in 2009, the Musa has been consolidating each year as a space for the dissemination and popularization of science, and a leisure space and enchantment. In these six years, we set up exhibitions, build laboratories, installed aquariums, orchid, butterfly, and the installation of a 42m tower, which allows the view of the forest above the treetops and has attracted hundreds of people every day. Are more than three miles of trails and two exhibitions: "Fish and People", dedicated to the fishing system and the cosmology of the Upper Rio Negro and "Frogs, fish and mosses," which explores the secrets of evolution of life between water and earth. The museum offers visitors a dip in the world of science and culture, in addition to causing his curiosity the richness of the fauna and flora of our region. Visit muse and discover together the forest charms! Open from Tuesday to Sunday and Monday by appointment.

I went to this area with a local guide hoping to visit the reserve, when we got there we were informed that we could not visit the reserve, but could pay 16 reais to go up a tower and get a view of the reserve. Since we had travelled all that way, we went up the tower. The view of... More

Musa is still not a trend among people that visit Manaus, but this will very likely change. The place is awesome for you to learn about the Amazon, some of its animals and plants, and indigenous culture as well. They have a shuttle service that departs from the city centre, and all the visits are guided. If you are keen... More

The Museu da Amazonia is an unique experience. We are invited to circulate among century-old trees, to look up and admire their canopies and also to look down and see the extraordinary tunnels of cicadas.. Other experiences and visits to exhibition areas allow us to learn about the Amazon biodiversity. Of great interest is the exhibition on fishing traps of... More

Beautiful place to visit! Bring camera and comfortable shoes, once you´ll be able to go on ecological hikes between native trees and get to know a little bit about the Amazon rainforest.
