The journey from the centre of Manaus to the museum was easy, quick and enjoyable. First I got the bus 120 (30 min). At the end of the bus route is the port. Then I got a boat to the museum (30 min). As it is still the wet season the boat drove right up to the museum entrance. I... More

This is actually a former rubber plantation that's been restored to give you an idea of what and how rubber was made. You'll walk through hot and humid jungle areas and see where the workers lived and learn how unbearable the conditions were. The Rubber Barons house is restored and furnished. Demonstrations of the rubber gathering process are complete and... More

We enjoyed visiting the place which in deed seemed pretty authentic. Especially if you happen to be staying at the Park Suites Hotel in the South-Western part of Manaus the small harbour where the boats leave is at walking distance (about 1 km), whereas the old town is pretty far away.

Seringal Vila Paraiso is in fact a film setting, but remais true to history. You can take a bus-boat from Marina do Davi - near Hotel Tropical, for R$ 9 one way. A 25 min boat trip, many stops on the way giving you the chance to see Comunidade Nossa Senhora de Fátima and other local residences, as well as... More

We visited in the Amazon dry season, when the taxi boat from Marina Davi drops you off some distance from Paraiso on a tiny dock on the bank of a river in the middle of nowhere. You have to follow a path flagged with torn bits of cloth on sticks to find the museum. Despite what you may read to... More

I found the museum to be quite interesting and informative and was quite impresses about the quality and preservation of the entire property. It was interesting to get the flavour of how it was to live and work in a rubber farm in Brazil at that time :-)

Don't miss it ! Here you can understand how the 'lords' of the seringais lived in the luxury in the middle of the forest, and how the northeast people lived and died as slaves to gave the fortune or those lords... It is a class of the real history !!!! The history we usually don't learn in the school...
