This is a precious (though momentarily at a low point due to cuts in Science & Technology funds in Brazil) spot. Of historical value and an opportunity to be around regional fauna and flora

Very pretty, worth going to. Trees, animals, a bit of history. Worth going. Just a shame it's so run down and poorly kept. I was told it was almost closed due to lack of funds. Museum itself was closed.

This is a big park with native plant and animal species from Amazon, and also a lovely museum. I asked a guide, and all animals there were rescued from traffic or illegal owners. Very recommended!

Pretty low entrance fee to see a bunch of cool regional animals, plants and trees. The museum within also had a cool exhibit on the Amazon as a whole ecosystem.

There's lots to see and do here. Perfect for bringing kids or elders, ideal for taking a break from urban touring.
