A bit of a thrill and very interesting to boot plus top class art works in gallery

I enjoyed this visit because firstly you have to get permission from the front desk to enter the Central Bank of Brazil, original passport etc...they photograph you....

Then you walk up stairs or take the lift to level -1 and everywhere you are guarded by armed guards. The exhibits are all labelled in Portuguese only at this time, but it is obvious what you are seeing as they are all dated...the highlight of the tour is the gold exhibit in a concrete capsule with a walkway lined entirely in gold carpet.... Gold bars are on display at the end of the section...

Then you are invited to see the Art Gallery on the 8th floor ...lift access explained by the guard...this is a small space gallery where they exhibit some of their collection of Art work, good, paintings and a collection of signed Dali lithographs whilst I was there. English catalogue and general brochure.

Money museum presents visitors with a coin blank dated 1972 but no value...also produced all the English literature the Bank had on Brazilian money.

Not a coin collector but found it very interesting and better than the Australian Reserve Bank Museum in Sydney! Although a coin press is there it was not working on the day of my visit though clearly that was where the souvenir coins are minted. Small shop for notes and coins and still had Rio Olympic sets included.

Didn't do any other museum and think this might well be a real highlight give the high security protocols etc...a bit of a thrill really!

Worth a stop when in the area. You get to see a history of the gold rush in Brazil and the coinage. Explanations are available in Portuguese.

History of Brazil coins. Great info about gold. Never seen so much gold in my life. Free, it took me about an hour and half to see and read everything. Mostly in Portuguese. Vigilant, and nice security

Museum in a Bank
Sep 2015 • Couples
This Currency Museum is located in the building of the Bank of Brazil, and therefor are the security rules very strict. Apart from the history of money in Brazil, it also contains the biggest lump of gold (nugget) found in Brazil and a lot of funny items and stories about money.

The Central Bank Museum - Museu de Valores has some interesting things - currencies from all over the world, ancient coins, and many curiosities, including the biggest gold nugget ever found in Brazil. Kids usually love it.
