Cultural Centre of the Peoples of the Amazon, Manaus

3.5
#7 of 34 in Museums in Manaus
Located about 20-30 minutes from the center, Cultural Centre of the Peoples of the Amazon is a well-organized place to learn about the people of the Amazon. A very knowledgeable staff is anxious to promote and teach along with an Indian talking about life in Indian society. You will really understand how they lived off of nature and never lacked anything to survive. An interesting collection of Indian masks, hammocks and costumes is displayed for you to view as well as unusual pottery, furniture and clothing. Check out the various exhibitions, a nightly performance or peruse the bazaar for a little shopping.

    A great work in Manaus for the exploitation of indigenous peoples. Always with exhibitions open to the public.

    Very interesting, because it has many indigenous parts that depict how they live, feed, Hunt and fish.

    Two museums in one place, with good structure and the exhibition $10-R R $15 by taxi from the Centre of Manaus, on the way from terminal Ceasa. I recommend to those who are interested in indigenous culture and colonization of the Amazon. The permanent exhibitions are very good and are very helpful guides and information. The downside is the bathroom and the water, available in a corner of the cultural centre.
