Palácio Antonio Lemos & MABE


This rubber-boom palace served as city hall in the late 1800s, and its 2nd floor now houses the Museu de Arte de Belém. The museum has gorgeous wood floors – cloth slippers are provided – and a fine collection of statuettes, antiques and Brazilian 20th-century paintings, such as Theodoro Braga's 1908 oil Fundação da Cidade de Belém. Two first-floor galleries hold rotating exhibits.
