Small but Interesting Pottery

It's a small museum but the pottery from the area is very interesting! Defiantly some unique pieces to photograph.

This museum features an interesting collection of stone pieces from the Tapajoara culture that flourished locally more than 6000 years ago. This building dates from 1867 and has been a jail, a city hall, and a courthouse. There is a small admission fee.

Museum contains a collection of local relics, although there is nothingto explain the provenance of anything - in either Portuguese or English. A reasonable way to spend half an hour, but not an essential stop on a tour of the Amazon.
