When in Belem...

Nice place for a visit with kids, an oasis in the middle of Belém. Good variety of plants and animals. Not a five star but worth the visit.

I've been visiting this place for 40 years and still one of my favorite place while in Belem. On a hot day you can walk in the cool shade for hours.

a little piece of Amazon forest in an urban zone, the Museum include exposition several times over the years. The ticket is very cheap (US$0.7 or R$2) and you can see alligators, turtles and sub species, birds, Victoria Regia (a floating leaf) and Monkeys. The aquarium was closed, but it’s worth going there.

Go there early morning not to be surprised by the rain as it happened to me at the end of the afternoon. I loved going there to check the birds, alligators, jaguars... There are also nice expo there about indiginous people and their culture. Don't even think about buying anything at the gift shop. It's very, very expensive and you... More

We were enthralled. An English speaking guide showed us through the current exhibition and the permanent one as well. She made us really appreciate being there because she explained everything so well and allowed us to ask lots of questions along the way. Only reason not to have given 5 stars is because renovations will upgrade the animal housings and... More

Except from animal in small cages, this is a good park. Particularly interesting is the indoor exhibition of Amazon native population and culture. The entrance fee is very low - 2 BRL (adult)

The park is very nice, organized and inexpensive entrance fee (brl 2). There you can see a small museum about the native indians, a lot of Amazon vegetation with huge trees and some animals. You can see birds, cutias (a small rodent from the forrest) running around and marvelous water lilies! Hence, there are some animals like monkeys, 2 Brazilian... More

Beautiful place. Lots of interesting plants and trees that are unique to the region. Lots of animals on display, the areas for some of them is a bit small but still I was excited seeing them. Only R$2 entrance. Go late in afternoon or early morning when its cooler, the tall foliage makes the heat and humidity in the park... More

Nice park for a straw, it isn't that large. It's in the middle of the city but you hardly notice that. You can feel the Amazon when walking around here.

Right in the middle middle of the city of Belém you have a little piece of Amazônia with all the sights and sound of being right in the rain forest. Parts of the Museum are being renovated right now like where the snakes are kept so they were no available for viewing. If you love history and nature you'll enjoy... More
