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

Very often, also for free, they have music at lunch... More

Went to see the free Dali exhibit that was on here in June but left underwhelmed. Not the fault of the institution but felt that the content was poor.

Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil is located near Praça XV in the centre of the city and is one of the free options you have to visit in that area. Close to the Centro cultural Banco do Brasil are the Centro cultural dos Correios, the Casa França-Brasil, the Paço Imperial and a number of churches, including the Candelária and the... More

If you are the kind of hipster guy, this is the place for you. For more outdoor people, I won't suggest you this.
