  • Featuring a Museum, the Museu do Índio is a little outdated in relation to the others who went in Manaus-in addition to having been the one to collect input. The exhibits are very interesting to know a little more of indigenous culture, but are divided in a manner little dynamics. The architecture of the Museum also doesn't help: there is a sense of imprisonment, are many bars, and the rooms are badly lit. I didn't think it was worth it.

  • Very cool attraction that doesn't seem to be much sought after by tourists. Attentive staff and prepared. Articles and parts of Indians from various tribes of Brazil.
