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 guide able to speak in English. The most fun part is the little trip you have to make to get there. You need to reach a marina in the Ponta Negra region that everybody knows its location and pick up a "bus boat" there. Just tell the captain you want to be dropped in the museum. They have a radio there to call for the boat when you want to go back, and you have to pay a small fee for each trip. On your way you will see some river activety, river beaches and floatings businesses, and in the museum you will be able to touch real rubber and see the latex dripping off the trees.

DO NOT BOOK IN ADVANCE. YOU CAN GET THIS TOUR MUCH CHEAPER ONCE IN MANAUS.
It's a movie set and there is no clear indication that this was the way rubber was extracted in the Brazilian jungle. When we arrived, there was no guide so we were shown around by the cleaner. She was lovely and it was great to talk to her even though our Portuguese is not very good.

Here you can have an amazing lesson to learn a lot about how everything was back on the robber plantation period.
Be ready to walk and be amazed by all the great things the tour guide will share with you.
It is an outdoor museum.
Make sure you stay here for about one hour.
You need to take a boat to get here. The boat trip is about 25 minutes.
If you need help on your way out dont worry! The tour guide will help you by calling a boat just for you whenever you wanna leave.
Very nice people!

The Seringal Museum offers an undiscovered amazing excursion. It is located about half an hour by boat from the Tropical Hotel or the Marine Davi, so that needs some organisation. But the Museum takes you back a century, showing you the real life of a rubber plantage and the process of rubber winning against the background of the story of a Coronel that came to the region.

The whole setting was taken out of the jungle, miles away, and rebuilt on the shores of the Rio Negro, just outside Manaus.

If you want to know how Manaus grew so fast and became the first capital to have eletric energy in Brazil, you have to go to this place. There is where all this started. The Rubber Boom that started in the middle of the Amazon Jungle has it history told in this place.
