Some visitors to Rio are not aware that it was once inhabited by Native Indians. This museum, housed in an old colonial building, is a good place to learn a little about Rio's original inhabitants. Opened on April 19, 1953, in honor of the Day of the Native, the collection contains displays of cooking utensils, tools, musical instruments, costumes and religious artifacts. Photographs and displays of native housing round out this collection. The museum has a store named Artíndia which offers crafts items for sale.
