That museum is so important to understand how Manaus became a city in the middle of the jungle. The Amazonas Theater was built thanks to the wealth brought by the Latex exploitation. It is also the memory of the people who worked under terrible conditions..

This museum, a 30 minutes, 12 real (one way) boat ride from the marina de Davi is incredible. The contrast between the opulence of the main house and the abject poverty of the bonded labor in the forest is shocking to discover. Portuguese only

This museum was actually a set built for a movie, made after a real village known for latex extraction of the Seringueira trees. It is cheap to visit and there is a guide explaining everything about this era. I'm not sure if there is any...More
