About us



The House of Culture of Marabá, was created on November 15, 1984, and sanctioned by municipal law n ° 9.271 / 1987. It is a non-profit public institution that was born more than 30 years ago because of the urgency to preserve the historical heritage of a material and immaterial nature in the south and southeast region of the State of Pará, in Brazil, to promote scientific research in the areas of natural and human sciences, as well as to provide access to culture through cultural, heritage, natural and historical diffusion projects. The Foundation has been dedicated to the preservation of history and regional memory, becoming a national and international reference institution in providing services, research and environmental and heritage preservation, acting in the areas of Archeology, Patrimonial Education and Ethnology; Speleology, Bioespeleology and Geospeleology; Geology; Environmental Education, Ethnobotany and Zoology.

Produção de conhecimento e lazer

Em 2010, aproximadamente 200 mil pessoas participaram das atividades da Fundação, número surpreendente e que coloca a Casa da Cultura como uma das entidades culturais e museológicas mais visitadas do país, mostrando assim o interesse do marabaense e dos moradores das cidades vizinhas em conhecer a sua memória e sua cultura.

Muito em breve o Museu Municipal de Marabá, que tem sede na FCCM, será desmembrado em Museu Histórico de Marabá Francisco Coelho, Museu de Arqueologia e Etnologia e Museu de História Natural o que será fundamental para trabalhar as particularidades de cada Museu, observados o patrimônio cultural e científico regional e as manifestações materiais e imaterial por meio de acervos e exposições colocados a disposição da sociedade, com o intuito de promover e ampliar o campo de possibilidades da construção identitária da cidade de Marabá, de forma critica e ainda oportunizando a produção de conhecimento e lazer.
