The palace makes part of a very beautiful area to have promenades, to relax and to try the tacaca de dona Zita. The palace itself is closed on Saturday afternoon.

Now a multi-sectioned museum beautifully restored where a local docent guides you through the sections you explore. A young Brazilian, who spoke English, provided an exceptional historical overview of the Palace. He discreetly shared insights into general Brazilian development and how 20-somethings perceive political changes. The 2014 World Cup cartoons from cartoonists around the word were hilarious! The 3-room exhibit... More

Best room in the building: archaeology. They could have more information printed next to their exhibits, but still worth a look.

I've visited three of them. Concerning the Amazonas Art Gallery, I enjoyed some paintings and artists, but was disappointed by the fact they don't allow visitors to take pictures of... More

In the middle of the teeming city of Manaus a beautiful palace appears, all pink and lovely and historic. The cool interior offers respite from the heat, and a bevy of english (sort of) speaking students will guide you from one room to another, each one containing or explaining another aspect of Brazil's tumultuous 500 years of history. And probably... More

If you have some extra time and are staying downtown, this place is all right to spend a few hours. The art collection isnt wide, but I still enjoyed getting to know some local artists. And the room where they show the renovation process is interesting - the place was in real bad shape when the culture office took it... More
