  • Outside views represent a beautiful colonial building which remains well maintained. With the restoration, made in 2009, the provincial Palace, known for more than 100 years as the seat of the military police, took over its designation of origin, which is in its completely renovated space, the history of Amazonia and of great works of cultural value in the Palace of the underground laboratory Alfredo Mendonça de Souza archaeology, St. George Bar the cellular memory and Arts Arena Newton Aguiar, for the realization of outdoor music performances, dance, theatre and cinema. We did not have time to visit all but it is a definite must. The Archaeology Department, I had the chance to meet a young student guide who explained some history and objects of archaeology. I still thank. Do not hesitate to ask questions they will inform you with pleasure. Already on the ground floor is José Bernardo room Michilles (temporary exhibition), the coffee Pina, the Pinacoteca do Estado, the Museum of Image and sound Amazon and the restoration workshop and paper artwork. And is on the floor the Numismatic Museum Bernar
