Great place to visit, classical building with great expos on site. Dali was the subject of my visit and the collection provided a great deal of information about the painter and his works.

Exhibitions, Theater, Cinema, Coffee shop and Bookstore. All of them at the same wonderful building. You must come here. Our Tip: Different from other museums in the city, it's open Mondays.

Who would have thought you could take in a Salvador Dali exhibit for free at lunch time. That is exactly what I did. Very well presented and some contrast to how some of the art is displayed at the Figueres museum of Dali. The Central Bank has many exhibits and a wonderful cafeteria for a quick lunch. There is more... More

Good Dali exhibit and museum. The highlight was the Dali experience as the museum itself is ok but the wow factor would be driven by the exhibits (or performances if they were inventive).

It was pouring cats and dogs when I walked into Centro Cultural Banco Do Brasil to take shelter on a weeknight. It was two hours before closing time and I remembered a friend telling me about a Salvador Dali exhibition currently on display. She said that the lines usually wrapped around the building for this exhibition. But I was in... More

If you want a museum like the smithsonian, that can wear out a pair of shoes in a day - this isn't for you. However if you want something quick and sharp for an afternoon then you may love this as much as a I did. It has some big names to pique your interest (warhol, picasso) as well as... More

The museum has a nice Salvatore Dali exhibit currently and it made for a nice visit. They also had an interesting collection of artists from a German couple's collection on 2nd floor. The quality of your visit will depend on what is being exhibited at the time of your visit. In Centro and walking distance from Uruguaiana metro stop. Close... More

Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil is the best Cultural Center in town. At the moment, they are having a wonderful exhibition on Salvador Dali, as main atraction, & on top: free of charge...............but they have plenty of other activities: 3 theaters, 1 small cinema, a good bookshop, a nice bistrot/cafe. Very often, also for free, they have music at lunch... More
