  • Not just a museum, but a huge botanical garden-like facility with wildlife roaming free about the park, and animals rescued from the region. Hundreds-year-old trees, two leopards, one giant alligator and two smaller ones (but still huge), aquarium, serpents den, turtles, and giant otters. The museum is also a research facility and has other campuses deep in the Amazon jungle where they offer graduate courses and research facilities. The museum now has a coffee shop and a souvenir store where people can buy arts and crafts handmade by local artists.
