Despite being not very large, and being quite simple, this museum is quite interesting. The nuns that maintain it are nice and there is an interesting section on early medical equipment.

It is a very educative insight into many utensils and other items of the regional amerindians.

I liked the exhibits of daily life like fishing gear, hammocks and housing. There are many examples of masks, baskets, and other crafts. Downstairs, I bought a blowgun as a gift. We stopped at the museum on our way to the INPA Botanical Garden where agoutis and monkeys prowl the grounds. Admission was 2/$5. A guide is necessary to identify... More
