Created in January 2009, Musa occupies 100 hectares of the Adolpho Ducke Forest Reserve, of the National Institute of Amazonian Research - INPA, in Manaus. An area of native land forest that has been studied with passion for more than 60 years. The results of these surveys, gathered in catalogs on subjects such as plants, birds and frogs, tell what Musa wants to show the visitor.
At Musa, we find exhibitions, nursery of orchids and bromeliads, lake, aquariums and experimental laboratories of snakes, insects and butterflies. A tower of 42 meters allows to enjoy a magnificent view of the forest canopy of trees, unforgettable when seen at six in the morning. Forest trails provide visitors with pleasant walks and amazing discoveries. At Musa, research is carried out in the dissemination and popularization of science and scientific and cultural education. House of culture and science, of coexistence and celebration of the diversity of being in the world. A place where humans and nonhuman live happily together.
The motto of "living together", rather than an imperative of understanding between humans and non-humans living here, is, for Musa, a symbol of a project of education and solidarity committed to promoting citizenship in cultural, biological and social diversity and politics of the great Amazon Basin.
