Centro Cultural Palacio Rio NegroCurrently Closed
Another astounding landmark that is resplendent with the prosperity the rubber boom bought with it, the Palacio Rio Negro was the home of a German rubber baron which later became the official residence of the governor. Today, this huge palace is one of the best cultural centres of the region. With ample of rooms to spare, most of them have been converted to small museums while the rest still have their original furnishings, all of which is open to the public.
The gardens are a part of their ‘People of The Forest’ permanent exhibit, which provides you with an in-sight on how the people in the interiors of the Amazon Basin live and conduct their daily routine; an Indian village and rubber processing sheds are some of the recreated displays.
Among the many museums at your disposal, visit the Bernardo Ramos Numismatic Museum- 11 rooms of rare coins from around the globe. The Amazon Image and Sound Library is a real visual treat with photographs and AV recordings; they also screen documentaries and films from Tuesday to Friday.

Quem é amante da arquitetura antiga é um ótimo lugar a se visitar. Arrematado em leilão pelo rico seringalista Luiz da Silva Gomes, o prédio foi primeiramente alugado ao Estado do Amazonas, no governo do Dr. Pedro de Alcântara Bacellar. Em 1918, apesar da crise econômica que se abatia sobre o Amazonas e das críticas de seus opositores, o Governador Pedro Bacellar adquiriu o imóvel, que passou a denominar-se Palácio Rio Negro. O Palácio Rio Negro serviu de sede do Governo e de residência dos governadores até 1959, encerrando-se este período no governo de Gilberto Mestrinho. A partir desta data, até 1995, foi utilizado apenas como sede de Governo.
