    The architecture is amazing, very helpful guides. Our guide was the Wadico who told us with a lot of property information about the local culture. Worth the visit.

    The place I least liked in Aracaju. Not by the museum itself, but by the staff that only repeated can't can't that and don't even speak of the museum itself. Until the caretaker was in a bad mood. Note zero

    I thought the mediation made very interesting, at a time and pace suitable. I left om other eyes on Aracaju and Sergipe. It was great to learn about the history of the place, I think it's essential for any person who really have an interest in getting to know the city.

    The tour, which is free, goes by fast for the quarters but it's interesting. The building is very beautiful, although give to realize that some paintings on the ceiling were retouched so amateur. You can't take pictures inside the building, only in the lobby. Currently the building no longer works as the Government Palace.

    Wonderful Museum that tells the story of the politics of Sergipe and evidence the Governors since the province up to the State. Recommend to anyone who likes history. Too bad it's not possible to shoot. Legal service a few times.

    The trick is the following: do not go on the eve of holidays. The Museum does not open! I left the River to visit the site and came to the door in my face. Building beautiful by the way, as well as the city of Aracaju!

    Excellent cultural option for those coming to visit Aracaju. The Palace Museum Olímpio Campos is very well organized and surprises by the richness of the collection. The Director who received us, Ms. Isaura, was very attentive and receptive. The visitation guide Georg is knowledgeable of the information passed on. Congratulations to all for the preservation of the history and culture of Sergipe.
