Very democratic, well structure, offers plays, movies and great variety of expositions besides the permanent of the Banco do Brasil, where you can see a bit of the brazilian history.

the view from the christ is unforgetful but the amount of people on the top ruin the atmosphere, and taking picture with no people next to you take you a lot. anyway , recommended!

I have mixed feelings about this museum-- we waited for HOURS because a couple people in my group really wanted to see the Dali exhibit. I personally could have done without the waiting, although it was cool that the museum is free. The Dali exhibit was truly excellent and interesting, but the rest of the museum was alright. It's worth... More

This is a nice little museum right in the center of Rio, sponosred by Banco do Brasil, the state-run bank. It features two floors of exhibits, including mulitmedia shows, a bookstore and a coffe shop. Best of all it's free to the public! Better to visit on a weekday, to avoid long lines. I recommend this museum.

The Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil is located in the city center of Rio de Janeiro. The building itself, which houses the center can be considered an attraction, a historical building with a past linked to the origins of the bank. The center has a constant and diverse programming that always has great exhibits. The last one was Salvador Dali.

This is a cultural center/museum. Depending on the exposition, you may found a crowd, full of people. This is a great location, close to historic Rio downtown. Going there, also visit ARCO DO TELES, PAÇO IMPERIAL and MUSEU HISTORICO NACIONAL (15-20 minutes walk from here). Not so famous like Copacabana or Ipanema, these are great locations, full of history and... More

I visit the place every time I'm in Rio with my family and we are all unanimous on loving the place (including the two rambunctious boys). The admission fee for the recent, outstanding Dali exhibit was $0 - no better value than that for access to world class art and culture. Note that they also movie theaters at the CCBB,... More

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.

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
