Narrated by an actual rubber tapper in his 70s, this tour focuses on telling how the lifestyle of the people on the rubber plantation was. They make a strong effort to drive home the fact that rubber tappers, who were mainly immigrants from the northeast part of Brazil, were exploited in what the tour guide refers to as white slavery....

Holden from Wisconsin (June 2015) and Ron B. from Miami gave very insightful and helpful reviews as to how to get to this lovely little museum, which might not be authentic, but certainly gives you a fair idea what life must have been like in the jungle during the night of the rubber boom. Just one thing to add, the... More

Just a short boat-ride from Manaus, this museum represents the life-style of a rubber plantation owner and his bonded labourers. Although it was originally created as a movie set (for A SelvaO it is hugely interesting and informative. Just make sure you have a good guide. Ours was GREAT (thanks, Clive). As others have mentioned, the boat trip was all... More

This small museum is definitely worth a visit. The boat trip to get there is part of the adventure. The guide is very enthused and takes her time to explain well. The day we visited it rained very hard, but the had big umbrellas to walk from one building to the next. The price of 5 Reais is really cheap... More

Worth the journey! Built on an old plantation site as a movie set for the Brazilian/Portuguese movie A Selva (The Jungle) which was based on a 1930 Portuguese novel by Ferreira de Castro. I enjoy history and searched for a copy of this out-of-print book to read after our visit. The author reportedly ran away to Brazil at the tender... More

OK, so it isn't a real rubber plantation having been used as the set for a famous Brasilian Novella (soap story) but the house and equipment are truthful to the times and make for an eye opening visit into the difference between the lives of the rubber barons and the plantation managers and the indentured workforce who were treated as...

For me it was really interesting because I am particularly interested in history. There´s much information in the visit. The lady who guided me was very enthusiastic about the place.

For those interested in scenery, nature and a bit of history this recreation of a 19th century natural rubber collection camp is a must. The original camp was hundreds of miles north east of here, in the middle of the jungle. The site consists of a recreation of a beautiful 19th century wooden house, furnished with high quality furniture from... More

A great place to go and learn the true and horrible history of the rubber trade. Plus you get to see how rubber was made and take a fun boat ride to get there. Highly recommended!
