Presume this was the Central Bank Head Office - worth visiting just to see the inside.- now a cultural centre. Always something on - currently (April 2013) a really great exhibition on Animation and Cartoons prob 40 or so different cartoons all on at the same time from 21st C to Bits of Snow White, MM etc etc. On the next fllor really good photos of Rio. Also has a permanent exhibition of the history of Money - shame nothing in English but as it is free worth looking through but better at the other end you can walk through 5 of the Directors Offfices as they were circa 1900's - very evocative - especially if the rooms are empty - were when I went.
Small Coffee Stand (nice Coffee Area in the Casa Franca immediately next door) If in the area visit the Centro Cultural Correios right next door (Also reviewed)

The building was very nice and exhibits just ok. Having read reviews before visiting I was expecting more...but was let down. Thought they could have put more effort into all exhibits. The building was beautiful...lots of people to provide security and information...but everything else was average to below average. We checked the block off sites to see in Rio at this place and moved on.

A great building that houses exhibitions. Depending on the topic will depend on how much you enjoy your experience. Our visit was good enough - focusing on Movie animation. And a different treat of on the ground floor of being able to create our own sand art
