They have the personal library of the anthropologist that was born and raised in Manaus. That made the best discoveries of the indigenous life of the Amazons and many other areas dedicated to the different tribes of the area.

Interesting collection of indian masks, hammocks, costumes. Also you can smell various natural products that are used to make parfymes (like Chanel # 5). Again, no English texts and explanations. Outside there was no museum/center sign...
