The  Emilio Goeldi  Museum is a research institute related to the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI).  It was founded in 1866 in the city of Belém, in the state of Para.

Since its creation, the museum activities have been divided up between the scientific study of natural and socio-cultural systems in the Amazon area, scientific communication, the diffusion of knowledge and collections from the region and formation\

The museum is composed of three different places: a zoological and botanical park in the city of Belém, a research campus on the outskirts of the city and a scientific station in the Caxiuanã National Forest.

The Park has more than two thousand species of plants and around six hundred animals that are native to the Amazon region and seems to be a popular school trip. For more info go tohttps://travelwellflysafe.com/2016/02/16/the-amazon-rainforest-brazil/
