Devoted to the protection and promulgation of the forest, the Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi is the heart of Amazonian research. In addition to serious research activities, the institute houses a museum open to the public. The museum showcases the Amazon’s diversity in a controlled environment, which allows you to discover its mysteries along with the scientists working next door. The artifacts in the museum track humanity's relationship to the forest, both as an adversary and a partner in the natural order of things. Investigate the catalogue of animal and plant species that call the Amazon home. You will be amazed with the sheer number of species discovered and truly impressed with how many of these species are beneficial for human life. You’ll also learn about the conservation efforts helping to preserve one of the world's most important resources. Plan a trip to Belem easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

A beautiful park and museum set in the city centre. The plant life, trees and wildlife offers a glimpse of the Amazon and is welcome relief to the hustle and bustle of life in Belem. My girlfriend and I visited the park without the knowledge that you need to reserve in advance, but the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Bruno especially was very attentive and professional. A must see attraction if you are visiting Belem, and even if you have been to the Amazon!
