The new Museu Histórico do Amapa ‘Joaquim Caetano da Silva’ , near Praça Veigal Cabral, covers various aspects and eras of Amapá’s history. The most interesting displays describe archaeological work done here, including Emílio Goeldi’s discovery of 14th-century clay urns in the form of seated figures, which you’ll find to be widely replicated in craft stores throughout the Amazon area.
