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.
