  • The Museum has everything to be great, but it's not just the lack of conservation. It's a portrait of the Amazon. Yields cool photos in the pool of Regal WINS. The enclosures of animals are not well maintained and the tank is in works that never end by lack of resources.

  • A park in the middle of the city with a great variety of birds, reptiles and animals, as well as exuberant nature a must for all ages!

  • The Emílio Goeldi Museum is not only a respected institution for its research action in the Amazon, like your Park, within the city, is a must-visit for those who enjoy nature and animals. I believe that, probably for lack of resources, it's a little (little) careless. But I still consider a very important point of tourist visitation and of science.

  • Um museu tão belo e rico em espécies e relíquias porém tão mal cuidado e os animais sofrendo de abandono.
  • Ótimo lugar para passar a tarde e descansar
  • Gosto bastante desse museu.
  • Bem legal. E no meio da cidade.
  • The Museum reflects very well different areas of culture and the territory of the State of Pará. Account with a variety of trees that show the richness of the Amazon flora, together with some animal species including a jaguar and a blue Macaw that make more attractive the visit, also is an important center of scientific research.
