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.
