  • I found the small museum, without a lot of information. We go in and out without someone give us information.

  • The Indian Museum is a collection of interesting and worth visiting. The Salesian priests and nuns had a strong presence in the region. Religious missions between mistakes and successes were present and made history in the ALTO RIO NEGRO. The Museum is the result of those missions. Worth a visit

  • It has a lot of items. Tools. Etc. of native people. It is a quick visit but ok. No air conditioning. No great lighting. 10rs or 2.5 usd
  • Great collections about Indians and your culture. The exhibition is in a school, which gives us the sense of zeal and affection with the indigenous culture.

  • It is an important historical centre, which tells the story of the Indian in Brazil, however, unfortunately it is not treated as such. Could have better disclosure.

  • Too weak. I was expecting a lot more taking since they claim to be the largest in Indian museums. Not worth the visit.
