The Amazon Sights

Museu Emílio Goeldi

Updated 05/08/2013

Fodor's Review

Founded by a naturalist and a group of intellectuals in 1866, this complex contains one of the Amazon's most important research facilities. Its museum has an extensive collection of Indian artifacts, including the distinctive and beautiful pottery of the Marajó Indians, known as marajoara. A small forest has reflecting pools with giant vitória régia water lilies. But the true highlight is the collection of Amazon wildlife, including manatees, anacondas,

macaws, sloths, and monkeys.
