Vila Paraiso Rubber Museum Tour from Manaus

Vila Paraiso Rubber Museum Tour from Manaus

On this Manaus tour to the Museu do Seringal Vila Paraiso (Rubber Museum), explore a recreated Amazonian rubber estate, typical of those found during the late 19th century during Brazil’s rubber boom. The journey to the museum is half the fun, as you’ll start your tour with a 20-minute boat ride along the Rio Negro to a waterfront warehouse where boats were kept to ship rubber around the world.

From here, enter the Rubber Master House, a replica of a rubber baron's home during the height of the boom. The building's exquisite architecture represents how much the rubber boom increased the wealth of some Brazilians.

Next, see the various rubber-making tools and then walk along a short trail into the jungle, where you'll see rubber trees. Observe the process of tapping rubber from the trees and see where rubber balls were placed to begin the smoking process. Lastly, visit the modest homes where the works lived, and discover their poor living and working conditions.

This interesting tour will open your eyes to an industry that transformed Brazil’s Amazon region in the late 1800s.
