It is one of the most popular cultural sites in Rio de Janeiro. Always offers very interesting exhibitions of modern arts, i.e. paintings, photography. There's also a permanent museum on the 4th floor of the building which is dedicated to history of currency with amazing collection of bills and coins from different times and countries. On the ground floor there is a nice souvenir shop. Right next to it you'll find stairs leading to the first floor restaurant which is a very good one but a bit pricey. But it is Rio!

The only thing to see is the lobby, which was huge, filled with artistic walls, center-pieces, columns, and the big dome. It is also a good break from the outside heat and humidity.

Read the review from tripadvisor and visited this place around 2pm. Ask front desk for more information about this museum. No one knows English and also with attitude. Walk around the entire building with only 2 exhibitions. Don't waste your time to visit this place if you don't know Portuguese or not watching a movie.

If you manage your expectations, a visit here can be enjoyable. Just as a different flavor to the beach and trekking experience, we enjoyed the visit to CCBB. It is an old building very well preserved and the gleaming jacaranda wood everywhere adds to the general ambience of the exhibitions

The owner of our B&B recommended this museum, and I am so glad he did. The visual art exhibitions showcased Brazilian artists in really well-organized, beautifully arranged galleries. It was great to discover these artists, and I would certainly go back when visiting again. Best of all, admission was free. There's also a cafe, book shop, and post office on site.
