  • 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.
