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.
