Learn about the 19th-century rubber boom in Manaus on this guided tour of the Museu do Seringal Vila Paraíso (Rubber Museum). This open-air museum is a recreation of an Amazonian rubber estate, where you can learn about rubber making, discover what types of tools are used to tap the rubber from trees and see docks from where rubber was shipped all over the world. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you about the rubber era and how it made Manaus one of the wealthiest cities in Brazil during the late 1800s.

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.
