The CCBB's three centers in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, and São Paulo are among the top hundred most visited art museums in the world. As stated in the Wikipedia; in 2013, the three centers combined had 4.4 million visitors: 2 M visitors in Rio de Janeiro alone. Therefore it is a must see for any visitor to Rio.

It is common in Brazil that you have some exposition for free. The place is cool. And it is air conditioned:)

Free Picasso exhibition running here until September (I think), interesting exhibition with plenty of pieces to look at from Picasso and other artists working in his time. There are also more interactive aspects such as a mirror maze on the ground floor and a couple of animations of Picasso's style of working.
