Overview
More
Created in January 2009, Musa sits on a 100-hectare area at the Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve, belonging to the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia [National Institute for Amazonia Research] - INPA, in Manaus, a native dryland forest area that has been passionately studied for the last 50 years. The results of this research, compiled in catalogs that broach topics such as plants, birds and frogs, tell what Musa wants to show visitors. At Musa, one can find exhibitions, an orchid and a bromeliad house, a lake, aquariums, and experimental snake, insect, and butterfly labs. A 42-meter high tower provides a magnificent view of the treetops, unforgettable at 6 am. Forest trails allow visitors to take pleasant walks and make surprising discoveries. At Musa, we develop research on science popularization and scientific and cultural education. A house of culture and science, of relationships and the celebration of diverse beings in the world. A place where humans and non-humans live happily together.

We were on a group wildlife tour and so an early entry to the canopy tower had been arranged for dawn. Fantastic very high canopy tower from which we got great sightings. Also saw Squirrel Monkeys in the trees along the pathway in the park.

Wanderers. We were sad that his tour was not so good. Possibly lacked organization to make an anticipated schedule so that our team could organize to better reserve its group. Anyway we believe that getting to know the Amazon was good for you. Thank you!

Note that you cannot explore the facility on your own. They require you to join a two hour mandatory group tour. You can climb the tower by yourself however.

Probably yes, but there are some information thats good to see there, and also the view is amazing, when you climb the platform, you see how the city is near the forest and put the size of it into perspctive.
