We did not have the opportunity to enter this building but it is certainly impressive from the outside. It sits opposite the Teatro Amazonas

This is just behind the Opera house and is a beautiful piece of architecture with an interesting history. English tours several times a day

I recommend to visitors who know a little history of justice in the state of Amazonas. Break their paradigms about the matter and will be surprised at what you see here!

It was closed when we was there, but the outside is gorgeous and worth a look especially with the historical context of the building and the city.

The building is just great and one can take many pictures. The guide on our visit was very enthusiastic. The folders indicate that the museum is open from 5 - 9 on Sundays but actually that has been changed and is now open on Sunday mornings. All in all the tour took under one hour but is a great idea.

Just behind the Amazonas Theatre is this lovely building of classical architecture. Even if you can not get in, it's worth taking a look out!

This is a marvellous new classical building but, as it is located just behind the Amazonas Theatre, with many trees in leaf, it gets a bit hidden and runs the risk to be not appreciated. Pay attention!!!

The building is closed due to indecision as to what it can be used for. Really worth looking at the massive statue on the roof. It was commissioned from France to show a blind woman holding the balanced scales of justice. The rubber baron's had it altered by the artist and she has no blindfold and her scales are tipped...

The palace of justice is worth checking out if you have some extra time in Manaus, especially if you have any interest in the History of the area. It was free when we were there, yet we still had a guided tour in english and were taken to some rooms where important court decisions took place throughout Manaus' history. The... More

Creepy room that featured one of the murder cases in Brasil - that was the most interesting place in this building. Nothing much else.
