It’s small. It’s in a two floor house. It’s not like any modern elegant museum. But this is one of the most impressive small museums I have ever visited. I did not plan to spent much time there but ended with three hours. It’s interesting to go through EVERY piece of information displayed there. A true museum in the sense that teaches me something if not everything about the people have lived in the Amazon rainforest basin.
If you are looking for clothing from the different tribes in the Amazon jungle this is the place to visit.
The staff was really helpfull and the museum was also well equiped and interesting.
Lots of information and artifacts from Amazonian tribes. Very interesting, and the English explanations are on point. Highly recommend.
