The museum provides a space where you can see and learn more about the "human and cultural side" of the Amazonian region in Peru. Displayed are more than 1000 objects including textiles of all kinds, masks, musical instruments, ceramics, vessels, armaments and much more. The main aim of the museum is to bring close the Amazon region by showing these objects.

Very interesting for children and for those who want to understand this area in an easy and didactic way.
