Created in January 2009, Musa sits on a 100-hectare area at the Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve, belonging to the Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia [National Institute for Amazonia Research] - INPA, in Manaus, a native dryland forest area that has been passionately studied for the last 50 years. The results of this research, compiled in catalogs that broach topics such as plants, birds and frogs, tell what Musa wants to show visitors. At Musa, one can find exhibitions, an orchid and a bromeliad house, a lake, aquariums, and experimental snake, insect, and butterfly labs. A 42-meter high tower provides a magnificent view of the treetops, unforgettable at 6 am. Forest trails allow visitors to take pleasant walks and make surprising discoveries. At Musa, we develop research on science popularization and scientific and cultural education. A house of culture and science, of relationships and the celebration of diverse beings in the world. A place where humans and non-humans live happily together.

I only had a few hours to spend here, but was so glad I went. I had hoped to go for early for birding which is an option for a bit more money. But being a single person, they wanted a group of 5 or...More

We got a taxi from Manaus, a round trip which cost R$150, no doubt too much but it gives you an idea. You can't really walk around on your own except on the way to the observation tower so don't bring too much camera gear...More

We had a great experience walking the 'garden' of the museum and climbing the tower. The view is truly amazing and it is nice to see the different animal species they have.

The MUSA tower is well known among bird watchers. You want to arrive latest at 6 am for birdwatching: first the birds are more active, and secondly only other birdwatchers will be there. Bring a scope, if you can. On weekends at around 9 am...More

Probably yes, but there are some information thats good to see there, and also the view is amazing, when you climb the platform, you see how the city is near the forest and put the size of it into perspctive.

The last tour to the tower starts at 4pm. If your intention is to cover all the activities you should arrive at least at 3 pm. Hope to see you soon. Thank you.
