Fodor's Review

The Indian Museum is maintained by Salesian Sisters, an order of nuns with eight missions in the upper Amazon. It displays handicrafts, weapons, ceramics, ritual masks, and clothing from the region's tribes. Although small, it is well-organized, and English-speaking guides are available. The gift shop sells traditional crafts such as necklaces made from seeds and feathers and baskets.
