Established in 1866 with the intent of being a research institution, an increasingly rich and diverse collection of botanical and zoological specimens led to this place becoming a museum. It has about 4.5 million specimens, covering the sciences of botany, zoology, archaeology, ethnography, linguistics, palaeontology, and the mineral sciences. The ethnographic collection, formed mostly of donations over the years, has about 15000 items covering 119 Amazonian tribes, and is greatly treasured.

The 5.4 hectare museum here is ties to two other bodies of the same organisation: a research campus on the outskirts of the city, and the Ferreira Penna scientific station in the Caxiuanã national forest.

  • Great place to go there and learn a lot about the nature.

  • Not just a museum, but a huge botanical garden-like facility with wildlife roaming free about the park, and animals rescued from the region. Hundreds-year-old trees, two leopards, one giant alligator and two smaller ones (but still huge), aquarium, serpents den, turtles, and giant otters. The museum is also a research facility and has other campuses deep in the Amazon jungle where they offer graduate courses and research facilities. The museum now has a coffee shop and a souvenir store where people can buy arts and crafts handmade by local artists.
