Very pretty, worth going to. Trees, animals, a bit of history. Worth going. Just a shame it's so run down and poorly kept. I was told it was almost closed due to lack of funds. Museum itself was closed.

Good morning activity and we saw lots of birds we had not previously seen (but later saw in the wild).

Pretty low entrance fee to see a bunch of cool regional animals, plants and trees. The museum within also had a cool exhibit on the Amazon as a whole ecosystem.

There's lots to see and do here. Perfect for bringing kids or elders, ideal for taking a break from urban touring.

Lovely collection of animals outdoors right in the middle of bustling Belem. I also liked the indigenous exhibits in the hall.
