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.
