  • Very good, with staging of characters in the story of Justice. You must mark the tour by the characters. Visits occur on Saturdays. Very informative for those who enjoy history and the building is beautiful, all restored and the staff are very friendly. I think it is a must for students and lovers of history. Easy access by the Central Praça XV.

  • Visit the Museum of the State of Rio de Janeiro is be watching a play, with the difference that at any moment you could be supporting actor of the show! Opened on 23 August 1988, the Museum is the first of its kind in Brazil. Four characters tell the story of the Palace. Of the Eastern Roman Empire came two characters, merging love story and exploits of the Empire. On the stairs of the Palace we hear: "I am Theodora, the beautiful and powerful Empress of Byzantium. Unlike Justinian, who was born with a silver spoon, I was a commoner (...). When I became a woman, my beauty has seduced the noble Justinian. " "I'm Justinian the great. The most important of the emperors of the Byzantine Empire. (...) It may sound strange, but my presence is justified even after 1,450 years of my death. My laws formed the basis for the legal system of many countries, including Brazil. "Representing our country, the Brazilian jurist opens the doors of the Palace:" I'd rather receive just like Ruy Barbosa, the cicerone on contract to guide them through history and magnitude of this imposing building is the former Palace of Justice ". Beside the Greek character points out: "many of you call me Justice, because this is the value that Government, but my original name is Themis. I'm the ancient goddess of oaths and laws. " Couples guide visitors through the Palace in alternating schedules. A couple presents the show in the morning, and the other in the afternoon. During the tour there is a trial, with the aim of promoting reflection of society on the judiciary. The former Palace of Justice in eclectic style was restored in the period of 2009 and 2010. In November 2016 the complete building 90 years. The visits take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Should be scheduled. Verify phone numbers on the internet.
