Restored in 2012, the Paço da Liberdade, a building that was once the seat of the government of Amazonas and the city hall of Manaus, located in the historic centre of the Amazonian capital, has become a museum. The palace's collection contains some of the region's history. Its construction began during the reign of Dom Pedro II in Brazil. "The Liberdade Palace was restored in December 2012. This marks the beginning of a new period for the monument, now as a museum. Its neoclassical architecture is a national benchmark. Proof of the territorial policy of the second reign of Dom Pedro II, who built this palace. Much of the construction material, such as the columns, came from Europe," explained Leonardo Novelino, director of the Manaus City Museum.
