  • Visit would be a must if we didn't have this country's revenue and profitability a brutal cut in funds. There is no money to renovate the Museum, because the people must not know history or think, so if the Museum fell, which stay on the ground!

  • Unfortunately the Museum is isolated, unable to access the inner part, you can only look at it from the outside, as well as some structures that are positioned on the porch of the Museum.

  • I think we should have more space for the indigenous culture of the region. Near the ruins there were some Indians of nearby tribes but in unglamorous location; children and women were in low site structure and that it was not inviting; I tried to make contact with the Indian charge by the group, but I noticed some indifference; I understand that should have a Funai employee or other agent who could play the part of contact between the natives and the tourists; I understand that could be mounted a place where indigenous peoples could be, with similar features which use in their own villages!
