AbstractResearch in informal learning of science has grown in Brazil. In the Northern Region of Brazil many of the science museums are located in the Amazon forest and have their own characteristics. We searched in this context to perform a qualitative bibliographic study on the Forest of Science in the city of Manaus-AM, analogous to the science museum. We consulted the Google Scholar and the site of a research group in non-formal spaces in Amazonas in the period of 2010-2018. We have located 24 complete papers published in journals and journals. The works on the Grove are usually descriptive of space and didactic sequence, and have ontological focus, with observation of living beings and use of information panel, faithful representation of nature, with minds-on interaction and heards-on, with empiricist assumptions and constructivists with environmental area and science education. We believe that future research tends to focus on the valuation of human experience and socio-constructivism.
