It’s a museum based on a movie. Some of the stuff are real other not. Is history mixes whit fiction. If there is nothing else to do is nice but…not really so interesting…it’s about a rich man using people as slaves…why should we know about this guy?

We arrived at the Seringal Felicidade but Riverboat. It is located on the Trauma Mirim creek river. Our guided offered us an intro to the rubber industry. We then got a chance to walk around the main trails and see different displays, demonstration and buildings recreated for this experience. We learnt a lot about the rubber tappers and their living conditionals. Including all the dangers they faced. We were told it was normally a little bit more exciting but everyone was given the day off for the FIFA game.
They did give us a demonstration on how they got rubber from the trees.

You do not need to hire an agency to go there, just go by car to the beach of ponta negra, then go to the Marina do Davi, and take a speedboat to the museum. It is possible to go by bus to ponta negra but be careful, the museum closes early, so be careful.

This place was a location made for the movie "The jungle" and nowadays is administrated by State Government. The property try to represent a typical Seringal (native area where the seringueiros used to extract the rubber of the trees)

It’s a great place to understand to understand the most important period of Manaus. But the place needs some maintenance to receive the tourists.

We went here as part of a tour from our cruise ship. We were told that they were normally closed on the day that we visited but that they opened for us. However, not all of the staff were working, so I cannot judge how the tour might have gone on a different day. The site was originally built for a movie, but it appears authentic. You really need a guide to explain things as the signage is not great. You can get an idea of what life as a rubber baron as well as life as a worker was like.
There is a store, a manor house and a number of displays.

It takes a bit of doing to get to the rubber museum. A long boat ride after a long drive out to Ponta Negra. But it's worth it. The site was originally built for a movie, but it appears authentic. You really need a guide to explain things as the signage is not great. You get a great idea of what life as a rubber baron as well as life as a worker was like. One of the highlights of Manaus.

A former rubber plantation (as pretty much the first thing I saw getting off the ferry boat was a small cart of rubber balls) with the main house & a few other structures including a tiny church, it's a site of average-to-good (as I saw it) "preservation & re-creation" of the plantation life (but I guess only of like the residential & social aspects of it since there's no sight of the actual plantation) such as: the main plantation house which despite its "not-too-imposing" size (of about one & a half storied with also not much of an outward upkeep!) features inside a nice dining room, two lovely bedrooms & even a "decorated sink" in the room like a kitchen (but with the upstairs being off-limits); the two-storied structure (right beside the main house) with the "general store" or such on its first floor with all the miscellaneous (as you would find in a typical general store in a village or a small community) with also some "presumably real" ledger books from more than a century ago, and where you can go up to the second floor for some nice views of the site's front grounds & the river beyond; the tiny church (right beside the store building) with actually some lovely "colorful decorations" inside; and the back-side grounds where yes be sure to go a bit further into the woods to see the small clearing area with a cluster of some small crude structures (including a hut on stilts with a ladder to go up) which I suppose was the living area of the workers.

I arrived at Marina do Davi after first taking the city bus for about a half-hour ride from the city center to the "last stop" for that bus (can't recall the number now given by my hotel front desk) followed by a short 5-minute walk to the marina where after about a half-hour wait was the ferry boat at 10 30 am which just took about half an hour (including like 3 or 4 stops along the way), and after a "just enough" time of exactly an hour was the arrival of the return boat at 12 pm (and which I'm not sure when the next return boat would have been if I'd stayed longer, so yes these ferry boats are at their "designated times").

I took a boat at the Davi´s Marine (Marina do Davi, one of the most well-known marine in Manaus). It make some stops in villages along the Negro River till we get to Seringal. Its very worthy and cultural for such small cost. Extremelly kind reception from the locals who were really engagemed in explaning all to us. If its your first time in Manaus or you dont speak portuguese, you may considere get there by an agency tour.

To go to the museum you have to take a boat from the Marina do Davi (ponta negra), it costs R$28,00 (round trip); 40minutes from manaus. There you learn about the hostory of rubber, some myths and truths, as the northeastern people who worked in the rubber plantation lived. The museum is beautiful, worth putting in the script.
