The palace used to be the home of the German rubber baron Waldemar Scholz, and was later the summer residence of the Presidents of Brazil. In 1997, it was remade into convention and cultural centre. Special art exhibitions, musical performances, and photography galleries are frequently hosted here. When you visit, notice the antique furniture and the period décor – they are reflective of Brazil’s rubber age. You’re allowed to visit the palace itself for free, but may have to pay admission in case of special events and exhibitions.

Rio Negro Palace Reviews & Ratings
Very nice place! Need to renew for discovering the real old style! Brazilian Citizens should be help to keep our history and conservation!
This is a marvelous palace where some Brasilian Presidents spent time during the summer. Visit is free. However I am feeling that the palace is not maintained anymore as it should be.
VALE A PENA VISITAR E VIAJAR NO TEMPO. PALÁCIO QUE JÁ RECEBEU MUITOS PRESIDENTES E GOVERNADORES. MUITAS DECISÕES IMPORTANTES FOI ASSINADA DENTRO DESTE PALÁCIO. LUGAR RICO EM HISTÓRIA. INFELIZMENTE FECHADO ATUALMENTE PARA REFORMA.
