The Amazon Basin Sights

Museo Amazónico

Updated 11/20/2012

Fodor's Review

This museum is dedicated to the region's rich indigenous culture, with a few faded paintings and "bronzed" fiberglass statues of local tribespeople made by plastering real people. One room is dedicated to work by local artists. The building itself, a former town hall constructed in 1863, is more attractive than the exhibits thanks to its ornately carved hardwoods and courtyard gardens.
