After following Kandinsky around over the years, I have never seen such an exhibition like this one! You can call this KANDINSKY 101 and it is in English! The Russian State Museum flexed its artistic muscles and put up quite a glorious exhibition. It is FREE (can you believe that??) and it has so many of Kandinsky's works that show... More

Beautiful building surrounded by other hisitorical places of interest. I spent the afternoon visiting an international Art Exhibition, temporary but wonderfully curated. Kandinsky. The café is fine and the building has several other exhibitions.It´s a good idea to check it out.

The building is beautiful, always great exhibitions going on, permanent ones are also very good. Theaters, a cafe and a book store. I visit CCBB since I was a teenager... So, about 20 years have passed and it keeps being part of my cultural itinerary.

A good place to visit. Beautiful building. Good exhibits. Near other attractions for those who enjoy art. Other museums quite close. Good restaurants, too. A different view of the city known for its natural beauties but with many other assets! There is a visit to Ilha Fiscal (an island where our emperor gave his last party!!!) that you can cross...

The Brazilian Bank Culture Center is one of the best places in Rio for the lovers of Arts in all its forms. The CCBB (as it’s often called by locals) is located in Rio’s downtown in a beautiful historic building., two minutes away from other attractions such as the Candelaria Church and the Telles Arch. Entrance is free, and you... More

The large marble hall is great to take a rest, rehydrate or even eat something at the cafeteria, have a look in Livraria da Travessa ( pitty that this one has only Portughese books). Plus the Centro is close to a Tourist Information Office.

They just opened up a Kandinsky show, which is very good. On the down side, not many known paintings, but very good to know the origins of the artist.
