  • The location is beautiful: in front of the massive meeting of waters of the Tapajos and Amazonas. The building, an attraction, with well-preserved architecture. The collection recently some surprises, as with estimated dating 3,000 years and the skeleton of a whale that stranded in the Tapajós ... possibly, like me, deceived with that immensity of water like the ocean! There we were met by a gentle librarian who told us of exquisite form much of the history of the site.

  • A small museum that can count on tour and with some trivia if applicable, if not do tour, will have difficulties to understand well the pieces on exhibition, the Museum has no informational boards with information about parts, only the name and often generalized as "liticas", I recommend that you do the tour

  • It's a small museum but the pottery from the area is very interesting! Defiantly some unique pieces to photograph.  more »

Where to stay in Santarem

The main cluster of accommodations lies just to the east of the Curuai-Santarem ferry dock. These basic, unpretentious hotels don't differ much from one another; views of the river are chief among the selling points. Move away from the water, and the lodgings get a little simpler, occupying formerly residential blocks, as opposed to the purpose-built blocks that line the riverside. The city's outskirts offer motels along the main roads, giving good access to the surrounding jungle areas.
